Carbon Monoxide Detector Giveaway - Fall 2015
The Wilmington Community Fund is sponsoring a FREE Carbon Monoxide Detector Giveaway on Saturday, November 7.
With the cold weather just around the corner our homes will soon be tightly sealed and our furnaces working to keep to keep us warm. With today's tightly sealed and well insulated homes, carbon monoxide can accumulate to hazardous levels in a short period of time. Therefore, it's critical to have working carbon monoxide detectors in your home.
Carbon monoxide detectors are required in all residences regardless of year of construction. There needs to be at least one detector per floor including the basement (finished or not). Detectors should be placed in the vicinity of stairwells, but not in the stairwell., in addition to anywhere a bedroom is present (within 10 feet of bedroom door). These guidelines may require more than one detector on a floor, but always better to ensure safety first!
