Daily News Links Are Below These Opening Questions And Warnings
How much carbon monoxide are you in when in any motor vehicle?

Did you know that many people do not measure the air they live in?
After prevention there is no greater awareness than measurement.
 
Awareness leads to quick thinking. Measurement leads to quick action.

Are you in the know?
Do I know enough about carbon monoxide and carbon monoxide poisoning to justify never knowing how much is in the air I breathe every day, everywhere I go?”

There are some people who want to be notified of the presence of carbon monoxide at levels or concentrations as soon as the gas is present, at concentrations well below those that can instigate poor health symptoms but not be high enough levels to sound the CO alarm they own. 

There are some people who do not want to push a button on their CO alarm to see what low, aggravating levels of the poison might be in their home, or anywhere. 

The most recommended CO Alarm in U.S. is a high level alarm
Standard for Single and Multiple Station Carbon Monoxide Alarms 
UL 2034
1.3 Carbon monoxide alarms covered by this standard are not intended to alarm when exposed to long-term, low-level carbon monoxide exposures or slightly higher short-term transient carbon monoxide exposures, possibly caused by air pollution and/or properly installed/maintained fuel-fired appliances and fireplaces…

We have all been CO poisoned, some more than others
The following link takes you to a site with views from those who have been poisoned. The seriousness of carbon monoxide poisoning, the grief, suffering and disorientations experienced are clearly portrayed with the intent to help others and prevent future poisonings. With respect, please visit: 

What is in the air you are breathing right now?
What will you be doing today; walking into poison?
Who will be responsible for the air you breathe?
You may be the only person who can prevent your own poisoning. 

We are all vulnerable to carbon monoxide exposure and poisoning.
Everyone has been poisoned by CO and will be poisoned again. The degree of the poisoning depends upon allowing yourself to be in a situation where someone else controls the air you breathe and the mechanisms for alarming notification.

Please read the alarm information on the package and in the instructions that come with the carbon monoxide alarm. Know that if it is a U.L. 2034 Listed product (or CSA 6.19 Listed), it is a high level alarm that has been tested to alarm no sooner than 70 PPM at the lowest (the alarm must resist for one hour when above this level) and when over 400 PPM before 15 minutes at the highest concentration, after resisting alarming for 4 minutes when over this level.

Know when your fire department and emergency responders begin wearing their breathing apparatus and what their civilian evacuation levels are for carbon monoxide; it may be as soon as the gas is present in your presence. Pregnant women, infants & children, people with heart & respiratory struggles, those suffering depression or chronic headaches and all people of vulnerable health should be alerted as soon as the gas begins to concentrate, around 10 PPM (parts per million) or lower.

You most likely need a low level carbon monoxide detector to sound off when carbon monoxide hazards are just beginning, not after you’ve been exposed to levels that make you have headaches, flu-like symptoms, increased tiredness, heart stresses or worse.

Do not take risks with carbon monoxide. Take responsibility for the air you breathe and the combustion systems you are responsible for. If you don’t do it for yourself, do it for others, unless you think $45.00, high level protection is good enough.

Help prevent injuries and deaths; don’t guess about carbon monoxide. Measure carbon monoxide for safety and knowledge. The more you test the more you learn.

A Closer Look: Fire escape plan not something to put off
London Free Press
What would you do if one of the rooms in your home suddenly filled with smoke while you were in it? Many people would not be able to answer that question because they haven’t taken the time to think about, let alone plan, what they would do should such an emergency occurred… In our area during the winter months, people spend most of their time inside their homes. It should therefore come as no surprise the majority of fires take place during the winter months between the hours of 11 p.m. and 7 a.m. when people are asleep, most injuries occur when fires are caused by cooking equipment, and most deaths occur in homes where smoke detectors haven’t been installed…

Campaigners raising awareness of the condition, known as the ‘silent killer’ say that just three in five people in Dorset struggle to identify the tell-tale signs… And more than half of homes – 54 per cent – don’t have a carbon monoxide alarm… More than 50 people a year in the UK die from carbon monoxide poisoning and another 4,000 are treated in hospital… The Carbon Monoxide Be Alarmed campaign said that as it can affect people before they are aware there is a problem, having an alarm can be lifesaving…

Polish Minister Denies Air Pollution-Death Links
Financial Tribune
Poland has the dirtiest air on the continent, activists say, due in part to extensive coal and garbage-burning by households. Climate activists say pollution leads to more than 40,000 premature deaths in Poland a year… The pro-coal government has been slow to address the issue, with cities trying to deal with the problem individually by closing schools, offering free public transport and asking people to stay inside… In January, Poland’s Health Minister Konstanty Radziwill said complaints about smog are unconvincing in a country where many smoke…

A mystery soot has set off an air pollution panic in Nigeria's oil hub city
Quartz
… environmental pollution has long been a part of daily lives… But while residents have become used to multiple oil spills which have damaged livelihoods and farmlands, they currently face a new kind of danger: rising black soot particles in the air. Since November, residents of oil industry hub city Port Harcourt, are complaining about increased soot residue on surfaces in and out of their homes… Nigeria’s ministry of environment declared an air pollution emergency in the affected areas earlier this week. The ministry claims preliminary test samples of the soot indicated it was caused by “incomplete combustion of hydrocarbons” as well as “asphalt processing and illegal artisanal refinery operations.”…

3-year-old boy pulled from burning building dies
WCVB Boston
LOWELL, Mass. — A fire tore through an apartment building in Lowell Friday morning and killed a 3-year-old boy, authorities said… It is a reminder that it is critically important to have working fire alarms and carbon monoxide detectors,"… Firefighters went inside but said the flames were so intense they could not check all of the bedrooms… Furthermore, hydrant frozen by the cold caused their hoses temporarily to run dry… “The hydrants were frozen at the beginning when we first arrived on scene. And then we were able to find another hydrant further away and get a continuous water supply at that point,” said Lowell Fire Chief Jeff Winward….

What is carbon monoxide poisoning and how does it happen?
ABC Online
In most cases of death from carbon monoxide poisoning, the first responder will not recognise the risk and also die trying to rescue the victim… Professor Anthony Brown from the School of Rural Health at the University of Sydney said people often did not recognise the silent danger of the situation… "The tragic thing that happens in these sorts of confined space accidents is somebody's in an area, they lose consciousness, they collapse, and somebody finds them and, quite understandably thinks, 'Oh crikey, I've got to get this person out'," he said… In fact, Professor Brown said in over 60 per cent of cases, not only did the victim die, but the first rescuer as well…

A Push for Diesel Leaves London Gasping Amid Record Pollution
New York Times
London is choking from record levels of pollution, much of it caused by diesel cars and trucks, as well as wood-burning fires in private homes, a growing trend. It has been bad enough to evoke comparisons to the Great Smog of December 1952, when fumes from factories and house chimneys are thought to have killed as many as 12,000 Londoners… That crisis led to the landmark Clean Air Act in 1956… London’s air pollution today is different from seven decades ago, and more insidious. No longer thick as “pea soup,” as it was traditionally described, the city’s air is now laced with nitrogen dioxide — a toxic gas mostly produced by vehicles with diesel engines…
