Protect yourself from fire

  •      Carbon monoxide (CO) is a colourless and odourless gas.  Because it can’t be seen, tasted, or smelled, it can affect people before they even know it’s there.
  •       CO is harmful because it will rapidly accumulate in the blood, depleting the ability of blood to carry oxygen.
  •       Super-heated air and gases rise quickly and produce what is known as a “hot” fire.  Unconsciousness and death can occur within minutes.  Bedrooms located on the upper floor of residences are frequently subjected to these conditions in the advanced stages of fire.
  •       There are three basic types of CO sensors – metal oxide, biomimetic, and electrochemical.  Most CO detectors are designed to give an alarm when CO levels reach a high level in a short time; detectors that display both high and low levels are more expensive.
  •       The National Fire Code of Canada provides minimum fire safety protection and prevention requirements for all buildings.
  •       CO and smoke detectors can be monitored with your security system.
