The BRK First Alert Carbon Monoxide Detectors are designed to warn you when there is toxic CO gas present in the air. CO gas is the leading cause of death by poisoning in the U.S. Everyone is at risk. Especially at risk are unborn babies, infants, senior citizens and people with coronary or respiratory problems.
A Carbon Monoxide (CO) detector is a home device that can save your life, as it detects CO gas. CO gas is colorless, tasteless and odorless, and a detector is needed to test ppm (parts per million) and alert you to unsafe levels. Resetting your First Alert Carbon Monoxide detector may be necessary after it detects CO levels and the situation has been resolved.

Carbon Monoxide (CO) is often referred to as the 'silent killer' and is the leading cause of deaths attributed to poison in the United States. It is odorless, invisible and an extremely dangerous gas that can be emitted from everyday appliances to the car parked in your garage. You cannot see or smell carbon monoxide, but at heightened levels it carries the potential of killing a person within mere minutes. Carbon monoxide (CO) is produced whenever any fuel such as gas, oil, kerosene, wood, or charcoal is burned. When appliances that burn fuel are maintained and properly used, the amount of CO produced is usually not hazardous. However, if appliances are not working properly or are used incorrectly, dangerous levels of CO can result. Hundreds of people die accidentally every year from CO poisoning caused by malfunctioning or improperly used fuel-burning appliances. Even more individuals die from CO produced by idling cars. First Alert Carbon Monoxide Alarms and First Alert Carbon Monoxide Detectors can greatly assist in detecting and identifying CO threats and give you ample amounts of time to evacuate your home.
