Carbon Monoxide Poisoning Prevention and Education

What ERC does with CO prevention and education

  • 1 in 4 homes have the potential for a Carbon Monoxide issue
  • 80% of the homes ERC serves do not have Carbon Monoxide detectors
  • More than 50% of all carbon monoxide incidents occur within homes (CDC)
  • Carbon Monoxide is responsible for more than 20,000 people visiting the emergency room annually (CDC)
  • The audit serves as education for the client
  • We install low-level CO detectors
  • Provide information in Client Education Folders
