CARBON MONOXIDE A DANGER AS FURNACES ARE STARTED

 

As temperatures go down, it’s important to understand the possible dangers of restarting a dormant furnace.  State Fire Marshall Larry Matkaitis said, “The greatest danger comes from carbon monoxide poisoning.”  Known as the silent killer, carbon monoxide, or CO, is an invisible and odorless byproduct of the incomplete burning of fuels.  To help prevent carbon monoxide poisoning, test CO alarms at least once a month, have your heating equipment and chimney cleaned and inspected every year by a qualified professional, use correct types of fuel for space heaters, and if your CO alarm sounds, move immediately to a fresh air location outdoors or by an open window and call for help.  For more information, visit the website www.nfpa.org.



DEFENSIVE DRIVING HELPS AVOID CAR/DEER COLLISIONS

 

Car/deer collisions occur throughout the year, but fall is the time when deer are most likely to be moving and might be on the roadways.  Seeing deer is the first step in avoiding them so eliminate distractions and concentrate on your driving.  If you do see a deer, look for others.  Prepare to take evasive action by braking normally and steering around the deer while staying in your own lane.  Slamming on your brakes and swerving will cause you to lose control of your vehicle.  Remember, it is less dangerous to hit a deer than chance hitting another vehicle, tree, or other fixed object.  If you do hit a deer, stop in a safe place, make sure no one is injured, and contact the nearest law enforcement agency.
