Protect Your Family From 'The Silent Killer' This Winter

me," said McCombs. "Yet none of my family members even experienced symptoms because of the quick response of our CO alarm. I hope other families in California take steps this week to make sure their families are protected."

Safety experts from Kidde, a leading manufacturer of fire and carbon monoxide safety products, offers these tips to help protect your family from CO poisoning:

-- Install at least one UL-listed battery-powered CO alarm or AC-powered

unit with battery backup on each level of your home and near sleeping


-- Never leave your car running in an attached garage or carport.

-- Never use ovens or stoves to heat your home.

-- Never use charcoal or gas grills inside or operate one outdoors near a

window where CO fumes could seep in through a window.

-- Have a licensed professional inspect heating systems and other

fuel-burning appliances annually.

-- Install fuel-burning appliances properly and operate according to the

manufacturer's instructions.

-- Keep chimneys clear of animal nests, leaves and residue to ensure

proper venting. Have all fireplaces cleaned and inspected annually.

-- Do not block or seal shut the exhaust flues or ducts used by water

heaters, ranges and clothes dryers.

-- Check all carbon monoxide alarms in your home. Do they use the most

accurate sensing technology? Do they need new batteries?

-- Replace CO alarms every seven years to benefit from the latest

technology upgrades.

Passed by California's legislature in September 2007, CO Awareness Week encourages all schools, fire departments, and other organizations to do their part to educate families about carbon monoxide poisoning.
