[ARCHIVED] Carbon Monoxide Program Update

Mayor Michael Beamish is pleased to advise that in support of the on-going efforts of the Troy Fire Department to promote carbon monoxide awareness and education, Meijer and First Alert have announced the donation of 200 of the new 10 Year Combination Smoke & Carbon Monoxide Alarms for distribution by the Troy Fire Department.

Recently three teenage girls from Troy tragically lost their young lives due to the carbon monoxide poisoning. Said Troy Mayor Mike Beamish: “It is hoped that through the generosity of corporate citizens such as Meijer and First Alert, combined with the efforts of our Fire Department staff to foster education regarding the dangers of carbon monoxide poisoning, no family will again experience the heartache of the Bishop Family.”
Upon request, members of the Troy Fire Department will deliver a detector, install, and provide education as to the proper care, use and maintenance of one of the combination smoke and carbon monoxide alarms that are being donated by Meijer and First Alert.

In addition, donations continue to be accepted to the “Troy Carbon Monoxide Detector Fund,” established last week in Troy, in care of The Troy Foundation, 216 West Franklin Street, Troy, Ohio, for donations to purchase additional alarms to be distributed by the staff of the Troy Foundation. This program has been established by the City of Troy, the Lincoln Community Center, and The Troy Foundation.

The detectors are available for residents of the City of Troy, and for the residents of Concord, Staunton and Lostcreek Townships served by the Troy Fire Department.
Please contact Acting Fire Chief Matt Simmons at (937) 335-5678 or 973-339-0495 with any questions.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION:
WHAT: Carbon monoxide poisoning can happen at any place and at any time. It is a colorless, odorless gas that can come from a malfunctioning fuel burning appliance such as a heaters, fireplace, furnace, hot water heater, generator or a car left running in an attached garage. The only way to detect the poisonous and potentially fatal gas is with a carbon monoxide (CO) alarm.

The Troy Fire Department wants to remind everyone of the need to have working CO alarms installed and to replace them according to the manufacturer’s instructions – usually between five and 10 years, depending on the alarm.

The Troy Fire Department recommends the following carbon monoxide safety tips:
• All fuel-burning (gas, oil and coal) devices should be serviced by a qualified technician every year. Generators, charcoal grills, camp stoves and other similar devices should only be used outdoors.
• Install a minimum of one battery-operated CO alarm (or AC-powered alarm with battery backup) outside each sleeping area, and for maximum protection install at least one CO alarm on each level of the home.
• Ensure that CO alarms have working batteries installed.
