Carbon Monoxide (CO) is a poisonous, odorless and colorless gas. It is produced during the incomplete burning of fossil fuels, which can occur in common appliances such as furnaces, water heaters, generators, fireplaces, cars and lawn mowers.
Everyone is at risk for CO poisoning, the symptoms to watch for are:
• Shortness of breath
