CO Safety for Children
The best way to teach children about CO safety is by example. Let your children see you being sensible and careful by having appliances regularly checked, and making them aware of the dangers of CO and its harmful effects.
Here are five steps to improve their safety:
◆ Install audible CO alarms.
◆ Have your appliances checked regularly.
◆ Don’t block ventilation.
◆ Learn to recognize the symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning.
◆ Have escape plans in place.
