Saginaw firefighters are working to make the city safer, one home at a time. According to television station ABC12, FEMA recently awarded the fire department a grant to purchase 1,300 carbon monoxide (CO) alarms. Firefighters have been installing them. Already at least four of them have alerted families to the potentially deadly gas. CO alarms should be installed outside each separate sleeping area, on every level of the home, and in other locations as required by laws, codes, or standards. For the best protection, have CO alarms that are interconnected throughout the home, so when one sounds, they all sounds. The Carbon Monoxide page of the NFPA website has additional safety information.
