Do you travel with a carbon monoxide detector? You should!
Carbon monoxide is a colorless & odorless gas. You can’t see it. You can’t smell it. But carbon monoxide can kill you. According to the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention, each year more than 400 Americans die from carbon monoxide poisoning, more than 20,000 visit the emergency room and more than 4,000 are hospitalized https://www.cdc.gov/co/faqs.htm.
Most have carbon monoxide detectors at home yet fail to travel with them. Don’t assume someone else is watching out for you. Only 14 states require installation of carbon monoxide detectors in hotels and motels under statute. http://www.ncsl.org/…/carbon-monoxide-detectors-state-statu….
Watching out for yourself is especially important when you travel abroad. Because of the recent tragedy in Mexico (where carbon monoxide poisoning is suspected), we just bought this one from Amazon. With a small, portable carbon monoxide detector, you won’t have to rely on someone else.
First Alert CO615 Dual-Power Carbon Monoxide Plug-In Alarm with Battery Backup and Digital Display. This one was Amazon’s choice with a ton of great reviews.
