Carbon monoxide (CO) alarms

To warn you of leaking carbon monoxide (CO) gas install CSA listed carbon monoxide alarming devices and alarms that you can purchase from any hardware store.

Purchase CO alarming device detectors with battery backup.

Warning If your alarm sounds, move everyone immediately to fresh air outdoors, and then phone 9-1-1. If possible, open windows and leave doors open for ventilation. Do not re-enter your home until the fire department has determined it is safe to do so.
