You have a carbon monoxide (CO) alarm. But do you know what it's telling you? If you hear four quick beeps, then CO is present and you may be in danger. But if you hear fewer beeps or even chirps, then you may need to change the batteries or replace your unit. Unlike fire, you can't SEE or SMELL CO. So, if you hear four quick beeps, stop what you're doing, leave the area immediately, and call 911. Just another ground rule from Columbia Gas.

How well do you know your CO alarm? Make sure you know what it’s telling you so you can stay safe! Check the video and then see information on CO symptoms and common causes of CO poisoning.
