CARBON MONOXIDE DETECTORS

Common types and how to safely put them out

PLACEMENT DO’S & DON’TS

According to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), there are more than 350,000 house fires each year in the U.S. Fires can be started in a handful of different ways and while some causes are common, others might surprise you.

DO PLACE YOUR DETECTORS IN THE FOLLOWING PLACES

GREASE FIRES Cooking fires are the #1 cause of home fires and home injuries. Keep anything that can catch fire away from your stovetop: oven mitts, wooden utensils, food packaging or hand towels. If you have a small grease fire, cover the flames with a metal lid or cookie sheet and turn the stovetop off. Pour baking soda or salt onto it to smother the fire. Do NOT try to extinguish the fire with water or attempt to move the pan outside.

HEATING/ELECTRICAL Most home heating fire deaths involve stationary or portable space heaters. Keep anything that can burn, such as upholstered furniture, clothing or bedding at least three feet away from your heating equipment. Make sure the heater has a thermostat control mechanism so if it falls over, it will automatically shut off. If something catches fire and you can’t safely reach the outlet, go to your electrical pannel and disconnect the power. If you can’t turn off the electricity, cover the whole area with baking soda; the oxygen will be blocked and the fire will stop burning. CANDLES Leave any matches or lighters in a locked cabinet, out of reach from your children. Keep candle flames at least 12 inches from any materials that might ignite such as curtains, blankets and decorations. If a candle does catch something on fire, smother the flames with baking soda or flour, do not use water because it will spread. CHIMNEY’S Every year in the US there are more than 25,000 chimney fires. Creosote, a highly flammable dark brown substance that coats chimney walls, can build-up and catch fire inside of the chimney flue, the space inside the chimney. Aim to get an inspection once a year to ensure the build-up is less than 1/8 inch thick. Prevent sparks from flying onto the carpet by using a fireplace screen. In the event of a chimney fire, use an ABC dry chemical fire extinguisher. SMOKING Always smoke outside. There are a lot of things inside your home that can catch on fire if they touch a cigarette or ashes. Make sure that when you put your cigarette out, you put it out all the way. Also, if you travel with medical oxygen, do not smoke near it because the oxygen can explode if a spark is near, even if it’s turned off.

• • •

On every level of your home At least five feet from the ground Close enough to every sleeping area so it can be clearly heard during the nighttime Near attached garages; cars produce carbon monoxide any time they’re running and those gasses can quickly spread to the rest of the house

DO NOT PLACE YOUR DETECTORS IN THE FOLLOWING PLACES

• • •

Near any sources of blowing air: fans, vents, windows In close proximity to fuel-burning appliances Direct sunlight

TIPS TO HELP YOU STAY SAFE:

» » » »

Never leave a car running in a garage, even if it’s only for a minute or two Only use propane or charcoal grills outside Make sure everyone in the house knows the difference between the sounds of a smoke and CO alarm Keep chimneys clear of residue to ensure proper ventilation

#MOVINGWITHROOHAN Meet Pamela and Sean Mergl

“We were so impressed and delighted to have the opportunity to use the Roohan moving van. After all our years moving with the military, we were so surprised that this service was offered by our realtor Jason Thomas. We were able to move into our new home over two days and they even supplied boxes! We cannot express enough how pleased we were with Roohan Realty and Roohan Moving! Thanks again Jason Thomas and Tom Roohan for the BEST experience. We highly recommend you to everyone.”
