Top 5 ways to stay safe from Carbon Monoxide this winter! Giveaway Canada #PGMOM

A few years back it seemed like every week there was another tragedy in the news. Tragedies that could possibly had been avoided if there was a Carbon Monoxide detector in the home. That winter I gave everyone on my list one for a gift at Christmas. The comfort of knowing they were protected was the best gift I could give myself. 

Did you know? Ontario recently made installing Carbon Monoxide alarms in homes a mandatory act.


As a parent, we always want to make sure that our family stays out of harm’s way. With colder weather just around the corner and furnaces firing up once again, Duracell and First Alert have teamed up to share critical carbon monoxide safety tips to help keep you and your family safe.

Duracell and First Alert’s top five CO tips for winter:

  1. Get a professional to check your furnace, your appliances and ensure your chimney is cleaned properly.
  2. Install at least one carbon monoxide alarm with an audible warning signal near the sleeping areas in your home, and have at least one alarm on each level.
  3. During power outages, if running a generator be sure to operate it in a well-ventilated area.
  4. Use the time change this month as a reminder to test your CO detector and change its batteries with Duracell AA batteries.
  5. While it may be tempting to warm up the car on cold days, don’t leave your car running in the garage even if the garage door is open.

For more on CO prevention be sure to check out the First Alert website at Duracell 9V and AA batteries are available at mass retailers nationwide for a suggested MRP of $7.99 (2pk and 8pk respectively).
