SAULT STE MARIE, ONTARIO ~~~~~ November 2, 2022 (LSNews) Carbon Monoxide (CO) Awareness Week runs from November 1-7 in Ontario, and Sault Ste. Marie Fire Services reminds all residents to prevent carbon monoxide in your home by getting all fuel-burning appliances inspected annually.
“We want to make sure everyone is safe from CO. More than 65% of injuries and deaths from carbon monoxide occur in the home,” said Sault Ste. Marie Fire Chief Peter Johnson. “Stay safe. Get all fuel-burning appliances inspected by a licensed contractor annually.”
Sault Ste. Marie Fire Services also reminds you to install CO alarms in your home if you have a fuel-burning appliance, a fireplace or an attached garage. Fuel-burning appliances can include furnaces, hot water heaters, gas or wood fireplaces, portable fuel-burning heaters and generators, barbeques, stoves and vehicles.
“You must have a working CO alarm adjacent to each sleeping area of the home, if your home has a fuel-burning appliance, a fireplace or an attached garage,” said Public Education Officer Aaron Gravelle. “A working carbon monoxide alarm is for the safety of everyone in your home and some homes require multiple CO alarms to ensure that safety.”
