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 ATCOGas.com/CO 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.
