Preventing Carbon Monoxide Poisoning

  • Service all heating systems and all gas-, oil- or coal-burning appliances by a technician annually.
  •  Install a battery-operated and electric-powered carbon monoxide detector in your home and check or replace the battery when you change the time on your clocks each spring and fall. If the detector sounds, leave your home immediately and call 911.
  • Contact a doctor if you believe you have carbon monoxide poisoning.
  •  Do not use gas-powered devices such as a generator, grill or stove inside your home, basement or near a window or door. Generators should be operated more than 15 feet from the home.
  • Do not run any gas-powered motor inside a closed structure, such as a garage.
  • Do not heat a home with a gas oven.
  • Clean vents annually and keep them clear of snow in the winter months
