Carbon Monoxide Poisoning

One of our SV members recently had a close call with carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning – luckily, 
her alarm went off, and she vacated the premises and got help!

We depend on alarms to warn us because CO is difficult to detect until it’s too late. As part of 
spring home maintenance, make sure that your carbon monoxide detector is working 
properly: check the batteries, test the alarm, and look at the expiration or manufacturing date. 
Carbon monoxide detectors only last five to seven years, so it’s important to know when it’s 
time to get a new one.

If your carbon monoxide alarm goes off, leave immediately and call the fire department or 
PG&E for assistance.   For More information - Click Here
