Protect your family from carbon monoxide
Safe use and proper installation of household appliance that burn fossil fuels, (i.e. fuel fired furnace, gas water heater, gas stoves, fireplace) is the best protection you can provide your family.

Follow the manufacturer's instructions for installation of detectors; install at least one detector near sleeping areas and one on every level of your home.
