Carbon Monoxide Safety Tips for Otay Mesa Homes?

4/5/2022 (Permalink)

A carbon monoxide sensor is mounted on a wall in a home. We respond to fire damage emergencies 24-hours a day in San Diego.

Carbon monoxide (CO) is called an “invisible killer” because this type of gas is odorless and colorless. It is caused when fuels like gasoline, wood, coal, natural gas, propane, oil, and methane burn incompletely. Our local teams in Otay Mesa and San Ysidro restore fire damage 24-hours a day in Otay Mesa. Carbon monoxide (CO) sensors save lives. Here are some CO safety tips from the National Fire Protection Association:

  • CO alarms should be installed in a central location outside each sleeping area, on every level of the home, and in other locations required by applicable laws, codes, or standards. For the best protection, interconnect all CO alarms throughout the house.
  • Call your local fire department’s non-emergency number to find out what number to call if the CO alarm sounds
  • If the CO alarm sounds, immediately move to a fresh air location outdoors or by an open window or door. Make sure everyone inside the home is accounted for. Call for help from a fresh air location and stay there until emergency personnel declare that it is safe to re-enter the home.
