Carbon monoxide (CO) is considered a silent killer because it is an odorless, colorless, tasteless gas. There’s one way to protect your family from carbon monoxide and that’s getting detectors installed in your home. Installation is simple, and the price is relatively inexpensive considering it could save your family’s lives.
Carbon Monoxide Detector
In 2017, Ford warned owners of specific Explorer SUV models (built 2010-2018) that carbon monoxide (CO) could be leaking into their vehicles’ cabins1. The danger is that CO is an odorless and colorless gas that can cause severe impairment in drivers and even death. The company took charge of righting the problem, but for many people, this issue highlights safety concern most of us probably never even consider with our cars. Is your vehicle leaking CO? It’s worth your safety (and that of your passengers) to find out by investing in a reliable vehicle carbon monoxide detector.
Did you know that every year, at least 430 people die in the U.S. and an estimated 50,000 people visit the emergency department due to accidental carbon monoxide poisoning? If you don’t have CO alarms, you should. In fact, most states now require them in every residential home. First Alert, a national leader in home safety products, manufactures several different models that are rigorously tested, affordable and easy to install.
