Carbon monoxide safety, we are all in this together.

“I Want It Now” Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory

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.

Consider low level protection for carbon monoxide and smoldering fire detection problems; don’t leave anyone behind. CO Experts

Philly’s smog sickens thousands of city’s asthmatic kids, report says
Metro.us
Contaminated, smoggy air is directly worsening asthma conditions in thousands of Philadelphia’s children, according to a study released Wednesday by an environmental group… An estimated 12,206 childhood asthma attacks occur in Philadelphia each year because of smog produced by nearby gas and oil operations, the Clean Air Task Force (CATF) announced… Gas and oil production such as that which occurs at refineries around Philly create the ground-level ozone that is the main constituent of smog, according to CATF…

For Boston’s Move-In Week, Inspectors Seek To Ensure Student Housing Is ‘Safe, Clean, Inhabitable’
WBUR
Last year around Sept. 1, Inspectional Services workers stopped at more than 2,000 units in the city and issued written notices for a total of 447 housing, building or environmental violations. The majority of them (308) were housing violations, which include smoking and carbon monoxide detector violations, as well as general safety, sanitary and non-emergency violations…

COSA Note
We received a safety appeal announcement from the Pikes Peak Mechanical Contractors Association (PPMCA) regarding damages from severe recent hail storms in El Paso County Colorado. Don Piano (Operations Manager, Training Director, Board Member) broadcast the notice to its members with post storm reminders… 

Excerpts from this announcement – “The PPMCA would like to remind you to ask your service and estimating personnel to verify the condition of the roof caps as they are called for service or are performing fall checks on heating systems… 

Some roofing companies may not even want to touch the roof caps leading customers to pursue licensed heating contractors to perform the replacements. This is ideal for allowing a good inspection of the venting systems and advising customers of potential life threatening conditions. As the weather turns cooler and the heating systems begin to operate, you may experience an increase in calls for service that may relate to damaged roof caps… 

Your attention to detail will be beneficial to your customers and possibly save lives… I have personally heard estimates of 65,000 roof permits expected to be obtained by the end of the year with Regional Building Department.. My roofing company told me yesterday that that is probably a low number. As the work proceeds, it may surge past projections.” 

The PPMCA and partners, COSA (Carbon Monoxide Safety Association), Colorado Springs Utilities, The Pikes Peak Regional Building Department, CO Experts and IntelliTec Colleges are very glad to have trained over 160 certified carbon monoxide safety inspectors with personal monitors in our community performing entry testing on every building they go into!”

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.

Reforestation Doesn’t Fight Climate Change Unless It’s Done Right
ThinkProgress
But planting trees in an effort to slow climate change is a complicated solution to a complicated problem — and experts caution that countries looking to implement robust reforestation programs need to be extremely deliberate in the kind of reforestation and forest management that they choose… “Trees, as they grow, take carbon out of the atmosphere. The more wood you have, the more carbon is on land and out of the atmosphere.”

Humans Sparked Warming Nearly 200 Years Ago
Indian Country Today Media Network
“It was an extraordinary finding,” said Dr Abram. “It was one of those moments where science really surprised us. But the results were clear. What we are witnessing today started about 180 years ago.” Corals, like trees, have annual growth rings, and these too can tell a story of climate change. By bringing together coral measurements and evidence from sea floor sediments, the scientists recorded a steady turn for the warmer in ocean temperatures early in the 19th century…

Repeat Carbon Monoxide Exposure in Richmond Apartment

A mother and her young son are afraid to stay in their apartment due to repeated carbon monoxide exposures, according to ABC News. The incident took place in Henrico County, VA. The apartments, called Treehouse Apartments, are refusing her request to move into another apartment.

On August 7th, her carbon monoxide detector went off in her Northside Richmond apartment. The mother, Latrice Garrison, has visited the hospital multiple times for this problem.

“I’m really fearful for my life and his,” she told ABC News.

She has been to the hospital four times in two weeks, and still does not know what the source of the carbon monoxide leak is.

Once she was released from the hospital, the detector went off again.

On August 11th, firefighters detected dangerously high levels of carbon monoxide at 156 ppm near the oven in the apartment. But the oven had been replaced two days earlier after a prior scare, so the oven was not the source of the leak. They shut off the gas supply to the new oven, and ventilated the apartment.

Garrison experienced confusion and headaches along with other symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning.

Health risks associated with carbon monoxide include brain damage, cardiovascular diseases, stroke, Parkinson’s disease, the list goes on. It’s also associated with higher risk of premature mortality usually due to psychiatric reasons.

According to medical documents, she was rushed to the hospital, where she stayed for three nights.

Even after the most recent exposure, Garrison says that the apartments’ management still refuses to relocate her. Scared for her and her son’s lives, she has asked multiple times to be moved to another unit on site. The source of the carbon monoxide leak is still unclear.

“Me and my baby, we’ve got to go back to this house and I’m not sleeping because of it. I’m stressed out,” she told ABC News.

The apartments’ property manager still has refused to explain the situation to ABC News.

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.

Please Respect Fire Fighters

Replay: Fire Hazards in the Wild (and not so wild) 
Forest and wild land fire fighters and support staff often get poisoned as they work.  These fire fighters work in deteriorated air quality without the aid of breathing apparatus that your local fire departments would not nor are they allowed to work in. The respiratory and cardiac health of these courageous people are jeopardized with the inhalation of the smoke and toxic gases produced by the various stages of combustion that are occurring. They often work in atmospheres of carbon monoxide above the evacuation levels used by fire departments for citizen evacuation of buildings and their COHb levels can only go up as oxygen displacement and poisoning begins. 

See Public Health Issues Associated With Wildfires 

by Lisa A. Klatka, DO, MS
 
They know about forest fires in Montana, unfortunately. Traditionally, breathing smoke on the fire line has been considered all in a day’s work for wild land firefighters. Smoke is one of the many occupational risks that comes with the job, along with falling snags, breaking a leg, or worse, getting burned over. Researchers are just beginning to learn more about the serious health problems that can result from inhaling wildfire smoke.” (Robin Bible, Tennessee Division of Forestry, “Breathing” ) “Through the detailed chemical characterizations of smoke, we find literally hundreds of compounds, many of these in very, very low concentrations,” says Darold Ward of the Forest Service’s Fire Sciences Laboratory in Missoula, Montana.

When forest fuels burn, they discharge hundreds, if not thousands, of chemical compounds into the atmosphere, including carbon monoxide, total suspended particulates, hydrocarbons, nitrogen oxides and water vapor. “Breathing high smoke concentrations does expose those persons to toxic compounds contained in the smoke,” says Shannon Therriault, air quality specialist with the Missoula City-County Health Department.

One of the greatest hazards in smoke  lies in the particulate matter, a general term for that mixture of solid particles and liquid droplets found in air. Particulate from smoke tends to be very small, and as a result, is more of a health concern than the coarser particles,” Therriault said. “For example, the diameter of the average human hair is about 30 times bigger. These particles can build up in your respiratory system, causing a number of health problems, including burning eyes, runny noses, cough, headache and irritated sinuses. Long-term exposure, such as on the order of what firefighters experience, can impair lung function and possibly lead to cardiopulmonary disease and lung cancer.”

Studies have found that fine particulate matter,  alone or with other pollutants, is linked to a number of significant respiratory and cardiovascular-related diseases. In addition, airborne particles are respiratory irritants and laboratory studies show that high concentrations of particulate matter cause persistent cough, phlegm, wheezing and physical discomfort in breathing. Particulate matter also can alter the body’s immune system and affect removal of foreign materials like pollen and bacteria from the lungs.

Carbon monoxide,  a colorless, odorless gas, is produced as a byproduct of incomplete combustion. Firefighters are exposed to large amounts of the gas in the smoldering stages of the fire, usually during the final mop-up stage. Carbon monoxide enters the bloodstream through the lungs and reduces oxygen delivery to the body’s organs and tissues.

Also See International Association of Wildland Fire  
Unfortunately we throw people into harm’s way to put out wildfires.  Fortunately we know that technology and portable safety systems exist to monitor the health and protect the air breathed in by these courageous people. The fire fighter should have a base COHb% test registered before their season or before their entry into the fire battle zone. They should be tested again when they finish their shift or whenever the symptoms begin to appear or be acknowledged by the fighter.

Breathing apparatus and monitoring COHb levels makes the most sense for protection even in the mop up areas where the smoldering embers may be the biggest threats.  

No one should have to breathe in those gases as part of their job to save public or private lands despite the tradition of the fire fighting system. Bob Dwyer CSME. Carbon Monoxide Safety

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.

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.

Senior Day at Church Proves To Be a Fun Occasion

The Girard United Methodist Church, 401 W. Center St., hosted a Senior Day at 11:30 a.m. Tuesday in the church’s Wesley Center.

Senior Day

Jean Ball, Ella Jean Kuhar, Norma Rothe, Cathy Zeitler, Pauline Van Huss, Doris Love, and Ron Zeitler (left to right) sit and talk over a meal at the Senior Day.

About ten senior citizens attended the event, where they have lunch, visit with each other, and play games.

A majority of the attendees were members of the church, but not all of them. The event was open to the entire community.

Norma Rothe, Cathy Zeitler, and Ella Jean Kuhar prepared the food, which consisted of sloppy joes, veggies, chips, and dessert.

Ron and Evelyn Weller started the group meetings about five years ago. The group meets once a month, on the fourth Tuesday of every month. The group runs April through October.

Every meeting opens with prayer led by one of the group members.

Doris Love said that they have a senior citizen’s group of Pleasant Hill residents usually over the age of 55. One section is independent living, and another is dependent living with nurses on staff. They are taking a bus Friday to Kampsville to eat at the Kampsville Inn, which is right on the river. Fish is the main course served there. In the past, they have taken a bus to Litchfield for shopping. The group takes trips twice per month. In the fall, they take a trip to see the leaves that have changed colors at Pere Marquette State Park.

“We senior citizens still like to get together, eat, and play games,” Love said.

“Anything for entertainment usually,” she added.

Jean Ball was originally from St. Louis County before moving to the area. “It’s usually a fun time. We eat and talk and play games,” she said. “This is just a nice bunch of people.”

The group had a drawing for gift certificates to Doc’s Soda Fountain and Magic Beans Coffee House.

Although she’s retired, Ella Jean Kuhar remains active in the community. For senior citizens, it’s important to have an outlet where people meet and talk to each other. “It gets some people out of the house to socialize,” she said.

Music fans heading to Reading Festival this weekend are being urged to stay safe when it comes to fire hazards… The weekend looks as though it could be a scorcher and part of the fun of camping is the barbecue… However, multiple deaths of campers around the country has prompted a safety warning about the risks of carbon monoxide poisoning…

Mitigating fire risks in factories and malls
The Daily Star
Fire is one of the most common hazards in Bangladesh. It causes huge loss of lives and properties every year… The leading cause of death in fire is asphyxiation, by a three-to-one ratio of burns. Fire consumes the oxygen in the air, while increasing the concentration of deadly carbon monoxide and other toxic gases in the atmosphere. Inhaling carbon monoxide can cause loss of consciousness or death…

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 surprising simple solution to bad indoor air quality: potted plants
Washington Post
In some ways, indoor air pollution can be worse than that outside. Concentrations of VOCs are typically two to five times higher indoors than outdoors, … According to Niri’s research, common house plants are effective at removing VOCs from the air. In 12 hours, an unassuming bromeliad (a tropical plant with long, swordlike leaves and spiky red flowers) removed at least 80 percent of six different compounds from the air inside a 76-liter container (roughly the size of a sedan’s gas tank). A dracaena, with its long, strap-like leaves, was exceptionally good at gobbling up acetone — it removed 94 percent of the gas from the air. Spider plants were lightning fast — the minute one was placed inside the container, the concentration of VOCs immediately began to go down…
