Fulton County Fire Rescue Department urges residents to protect against CO poisoning

Fulton County Fire Rescue Department urges residents to protect against CO poisoning

FULTON COUNTY, Ga. -- The Fulton County Fire Rescue Department urges every resident to learn the dangers of carbon monoxide poisoning.

According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, more than 150 people in the Unites States die every year from accidental non-fire-related CO poisoning associated with consumer products, including generators and other products including faulty, improperly-used or incorrectly-vented fuel-burning appliances such as furnaces, stoves, water heaters and fireplaces.

“Because CO is odorless, colorless, and otherwise undetectable to the human senses, people may not know that they are being exposed,” states Chief Larry Few, Fulton County Fire Rescue Department. “Although the popularity of carbon monoxide alarms has been growing in recent years, it cannot be assumed that everyone is familiar with the hazards of carbon monoxide poisoning in the home.”
