Fire Marshal Issues CO Alarm Reminder
The office of the state fire marshal is urging all of us to identify when it is time to replace our old carbon monoxide alarms with new ones. Depending on the year and the type of manufacturing, carbon monoxide alarms reach the end of life after about three years.
According to the National Fire Protection Association, carbon monoxide is the number one cause of poisoning deaths in the nation, taking nearly 300 lives per year.
The fire marshal recommends you test your carbon monoxide alarm once a month.
