Carbon Monoxide Awareness Week Kicks Off!

November 2, 2017

Every year, ATCO responds to more than 3,000 service and emergency calls related to carbon monoxide (CO), involving improperly operating natural gas appliances, exhaust from vehicles idling in a garage, and poorly vented wood-burning fireplaces. CO is extremely hard to detect and in an enclosed space such as a home or garage, even a small amount can be dangerous.

Download the CO Checklist on to get some tips on how to protect and detect CO in your home. This year, the checklists are available in eight different languages: Arabic, Chinese, French, German, Punjabi, Spanish, Tagalog and Ukrainian.
