  • Description:
    Carbon monoxide (CO) is an odorless, colorless gas that can cause sudden illness and death if inhaled -- Every year, more than 500 people die in the U. S. from accidental CO poisoning -- How to recognize CO poisoning -- Important CO poisoning prevention tips -- Educational materials.

    Generators, grills, camp stoves, or other gasoline, propane, natural gas, or charcoal-burning devices should never be used inside a home, basement, garage, or camper—or even outside near an open window.

    Every home should have at least one working carbon monoxide detector. The detector’s batteries should be checked twice annually, at the same time smoke detector batteries are checked.
