Carbon Monoxide Warnings

Because of the inordinate amount of snowfall this year, extra fire safety precautions need to be taken

  • Those of you that have gas fired applicances in your home MUST make certain that the outside vents for these units STAY CLEAR OF SNOW DRIFTS which could block these same vents.
  • If the opening on the vent is compromised, then CARBON MONOXIDE can build up in the home to DANGEROUS LEVELS.

Please take the necessary steps to insure that this situation does not occur.
