Carbon Monoxide Safety

The frigid cold this week is a reminder of the winter that is upon us and the snow that has yet to come.  This brings to mind the dangers of carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning and what we can do to prevent carbon monoxide related injuries and possible death.  Lisa Allee, Injury Prevention Coordinator at Boston Medical Center, wants to remind everyone of the importance of clearing your undercarriage and tailpipe before getting in your vehicle this winter, along with the many other ways to prevent CO poisoning.   Please see the attached flyer from our Office of the State Fire Marshall for information and ways to protect you and your family.
