Copied & share Carbon monoxide detectors, also known as CO alarms, function similarly to smoke alarms. If carbon monoxide levels are present in your home, the detector will emit a sharp beeping sound to alert you to the danger. Like smoke alarms, it is important to change your CO detector batteries regularly; I like to schedule new batteries for Daylight Savings time change, since they make it easy to remember this twice-yearly swap. How do I install a carbon monoxide alarm? Heat and smoke rise, which is why we place smoke alarms high on the wall or ceiling. Carbon monoxide, however, mixes with the air. For this reason, it is preferable to install CO alarms at knee level – the approximate height of a sleeping person’s nose and mouth. If you have young children or pets that could tamper (play) with your detectors, you can move them up to chest height. Another option is to place them in a hard-to-reach area, where even curious hands and overzealous tails would have a hard time reaching. Bear in mind that a CO detector should never be blocked by furniture, curtains or other objects, as restricted airflow can affect its function. A single-function carbon monoxide alarm is recommended, but if you are installing a dual smoke-CO detector, place it on the ceiling so it can detect smoke.

With cooler temperatures expected, some may want to use their small space heaters. If so, DO NOT plug them into a power strip. These devices are not designed to handle the energy load of a space heater and can overheat causing a fire hazard. Please Share.

This why you should have your heater checked every year. Don't know how long it's been rotting away but residents are lucky they were not a victim of carbon monoxide.

WHEN TO USE 9-1-1: We are often contacted by people with a problem needing police attention but they are hesitant to call 9-1-1. When it is appropriate to call 9-1-1? The answer to this question is rather simple. If you need a police response, it is appropriate to call 9-1-1. This could be to report anything from a robbery to an illegally parked vehicle. ALL police dispatch in the City of Philadelphia is handled via Police Radio at 8th and Race Streets.Their direct and only telephone number is 9-1-1. If you call the local Police District, you will be instructed to call 9-1-1 as local Districts do not have dispatch ability. When would it be appropriate to call the local Police District? This should be used to report a chronic problem, but one that does not require immediate police response. For example, if a group of people have a wild party every Friday night, you can report this to the local Police District so that police can pay close attention during their patrols. 9-1-1 should also be used for fire or medical emergencies as you will be transferred to the Fire Department. Please note that for all other city services, you should call 3-1-1. This could be for defective street lights, pot holes, trash complaints, issues regarding permits, graffiti, etc. We hope this helps clear up the issue of when to call 9-1-1.
