Watch out for a silent danger during the coming storm!
Carbon Monoxide poisoning takes the lives of over 400 American’s each year and sends more than 20,000 to emergency rooms! Carbon monoxide-related deaths are highest when the weather is very cold – likely because people use gas-powered furnaces or other sources of heat that use gas.
As the next winter storm moves to North Carolina with significant snowfall anticipated, there is the potential for almost anything to happen.
Be prepared and aware!
Follow all manufacturers’ safety guidelines.
Make sure your carbon monoxide alarms are in central locations and working properly.
If an alarm sounds, move quickly! Open a door or window to let in fresh air.
Call for emergency help from a “clear air” location – not from inside the house.
NC Homeowners Alliance hopes all North Carolinians are safe and secure during the upcoming winter weather event.
