Now is an excellent time to remind everyone that every home or workplace needs to have updated and functioning CO (Carbon Monoxide) detectors and to have your Heating and Hot Water systems inspected annually. Detectors do expire, so check the mfg. date on the back. In general, they have a 5 to 7 year life-span depending on the manufacturer. It’s helpful to write the replacement date on the front where you can see it.

This year, WSFR has responded on a couple of CO related issues, one nearly resulted in the death of a family. We are partners with The LAUREN Project and encourage you to review the facts on their webpage.

If your detector is alarming, evacuate the building and call 911. We are happy to respond and evaluate the situation.
