Carbon Monoxide Awareness

The Broad Brook Fire Department would like to remind everyone to be aware of the dangers of Carbon Monoxide Poisoning as the weather gets colder and we close up our homes and use alternative heating sources.  Everyone should try and invest in CO Detectors for their homes and call should one sound and alert you to a possible problem.

Below are some simple facts about CO poisoning as well as some symptoms you may have to alert you of a possible problem if you do not have a CO detector in your home.

As always please do not hesitate to call us at any time if you think there may be a CO problem in your home.  It is always better to be safe than sorry when it comes to CO.  As you will read below it is colorless and odorless poison, and if gone undetected it could be fatal.
