What You Can Do as a CO BUSTER
Count the number of CO and smoke alarm(s) in your house. Do they all work?
Ask what places you can get a CO alarm?
Ask if the furnace is working well? Has it been cleaned, tuned-up, etc. recently?
See if you have soot around your furnace, fireplace, ceiling - could be indication of CO being present.
Look at the flue pipes on the furnace and water heater to be sure venting is ok. Do they have cracks or holes? Are they rusty?
Ask if an automobile is ever left running in your garage?
Do you have a gas kitchen stove? Ask if it is ever used to heat the house?
Copy pages from COHQ and study them - show them to your brothers, sister, parents, teachers, etc.
Invite a speaker from your fire department or utility company to give you a presentation on CO
