    PREVENTING CARBON MONOXIDE POISONING

    • Service all heating systems and all gas-, oil- or coal-burning appliances by a technician annually.

    • Install a battery-operated and electric-powered carbon monoxide detector in your home and check or replace the battery when you change the time on your clocks each spring and fall. If the detector sounds, leave your home immediately and call 911.

    • Contact a doctor if you believe you have carbon monoxide poisoning.

    • Do not use gas-powered devices such as a generator, grill or stove inside your home, basement or near a near a window or door. Generators should be operated more than 15 feet from the home.

    • Do not run any gas-powered motor inside a closed structure, such as a garage.

    • Do not heat a home with a gas oven.

  • Focus On Fire Safety: Fireworks
    Updated On: Jun 20, 2010

    Every year in the United States, we celebrate the Fourth of July with community
    parades, picnics, barbecues, and fireworks – the things of which happy memories are
    made. But sadly, Independence Day also includes tragic events resulting from fireworks
    use. The safest way to enjoy them is through public displays conducted by professional
    pyrotechnicians hired by communities. Learning fireworks safety tips can help ensure
    that everyone has a happy and safe summer holiday.
    By the Numbers: Fireworks
         • 30,100 Estimated number of fires caused by fireworks each year
         • 7,000 Estimated number of injuries caused by fireworks in 2008
         • 7 Fireworks-related deaths occurred in 2008
         • $34 million Amount of direct property loss caused by fireworks
    Sources: National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC)
    Who is at Most Risk?
         In 2008, U.S. hospital emergency rooms treated an estimated 7,000 people for
    fireworks-related injuries. 70 percent of these injuries occurred between June 20 - July
    20. Of these:
         • 46 percent of injuries were to the extremities and 36 percent were to the head.
         • 56 percent were burns, while 21 percent were contusions and lacerations.
         • Two of 5 people injured by fireworks were under the age of 15.
         • 62 percent of injuries were to males; 38 percent were to females.
         • Devices such as sparklers, fountains, roman candles, and novelties accounted
            for 40 percent of injuries; firecrackers caused 18 percent of injuries.
