Carbon Monoxide Awareness


How do you protect yourself from something deadly that you can’t see, smell and taste?

It’s a difficult task, unless you have a carbon monoxide detector. Carbon Monoxide (CO) is a deadly gas, which is invisible, odourless, tasteless and is also known as the silent killer.

According, to Ontario’s new Carbon Monoxide Alarm Law, which came into effect on Oct. 15, 2014, every house and residential building with a fuel burning appliance or an attached garage must have a CO alarm.

The CO detector must be installed outside the rooms of all sleeping areas and be tested regularly by home owners, building owners and landlords.

To educate people about the silent killer and how to prevent them from being poisoned, Carbon Monoxide Awareness Week is from Nov. 1-7.

This infographic provides some helpful tips about how to stay safe in your home, reduce the chances of having carbon monoxide poisoning and some facts about this deadly gas.
