Each year, an average of 400 Americans lose their lives to a killer they cannot see or hear. Scores of others who come into contact with this assailant end up in emergency rooms or even hospitalized for extended periods.
The silent, invisible killer is carbon monoxide, CO.
We tend to hear about more incidents of carbon monoxide poisoning this time of year when the outdoor temperatures are frigid, our homes are closed up tight and our furnaces seem to run non-stop. But the truth is, carbon monoxide can strike any time of the year, at just about any location, and it doesn’t discriminate!
