    Check your Carbon Monoxide detectors

    Our province may follow Ontario with a new law that requires all residences to install Carbon Monoxide detectors.

    This happened in Ontario

    ~The impetus was the deaths of a Woodstock couple, former OPP officer Laurie Hawkins, her husband Richard and their two children, 14-year-old daughter Cassandra and 12-year-old son Jordan. The four died because of a CO build-up due to a blocked chimney associated with a gas fireplace.
    Carbon monoxide is an odourless, colourless, tasteless gas that is a byproduct of the combustion of natural gas, propane, home heating oil or wood.

    Please check the detector in your RV as its usefulness expires in SEVEN years and if its a new RV make sure the batteries have been removed
    from their plastic wrapper.Also replace the batteries each year!

    Re: Check your Carbon Monoxide detectors

    Cheap life insurance. From now until spring, we'll probably run on a multitude of CO calls, the majority of them due to old batteries. But I've been to a few where my air monitor ramped up as soon as I entered the home. That's why I wear full PPE, including my SCBA, when I'm the one going in to check it out. If it burns, it can produce carbon monoxide.
