Carbon Monoxide Detectors

The Bureau of Fire Prevention recommends that each residential home have at least ONE carbon monoxide detector.

There is no certain area where the detector needs to be located, however, it is recommended they be close to a sleeping area.

Carbon Monoxide is odorless, tasteless, colorless and highly toxic that is undetected to the human senses.

Carbon Monoxide typically comes from fuel burning appliances, or some sort of failing mechanical system.

The Wheeling Fire Department can always be called if a home owner believes they are in danger of carbon monoxide.
