What are Carbon Monoxide Detectors?
These are not required by law but are desirable. When the detector activates evacuate the house open windows and doors and contact the gas company or plumber to check gas appliances. Detectors are likely to go off in the winter months when houses are closed up and heaters are on. If your detector sounds an alarm and if anyone in the house has a headache feels nauseous or ill, call the fire department.
