The alarm on my carbon monoxide detector just went off, what do I do?
Check the unit and batteries for proper functioning. If they appear to be working properly, contact the fire department immediately. Carbon monoxide is a tasteless, odorless gas. Over exposure can result in death. It is a good idea to have the Health Department check the carbon monoxide levels in your home, even when there is no obvious problem. A good time for this test is the beginning of each heating season.
