It’s that time of year when we give gifts and want to help our loved ones to live happier lives. You may have a family member that is impossible to buy for. You know Uncle Charlie, the one you re-gift most of the time. We’ve got a better idea for that special someone this year. For as little as $15 you can get a carbon monoxide detector that may save a life. In 2014 we’ve had two reported instances where a person has nearly lost their lives to carbon monoxide poisoning. Here’s an excerpt from one of them:
“My stepfather didn’t answer the phone. No one knew what was going on with him. With no family in the area we felt really helpless. Luckily his friends were going to visit. Upon arrival no one answered the door. They had the fire department come and break down the door, which saved his life. He would have never awakened had they not made it to save him!”
Carbon monoxide is called “The Silent Killer” because it is odorless, colorless, and otherwise undetectable to the human senses. There are many things you can do to prevent carbon monoxide poisoning with some simple steps, one of which is installing a carbon monoxide detector. Prices start around $15. This would be a great gift for that someone that has everything, or you have no clue what to get them – give them defense against “The Silent Killer”!
