Important message from our friends at Washington Township Fire DepartmentCarbon Monoxide is a colorless, odorless gas produced by household appliances that burn fuel or natural gas including furnaces, stoves, hot water heaters, and gas-powered generators which cannot be detected by the human senses dubbing it a “silent killer”. Common symptoms include headache, fatigue, and nausea at lower levels which could result in disorientation, unconsciousness, and even death at higher levels. Properly functioning in-home detectors are designed to activate at levels below the threshold that could be hazardous, allowing time for residents to evacuate and have the proper authorities identify the issue.Voorhees Township Fire Department strongly urges residents to install detectors within their home, and ensure that they are tested, and within the manufacturer’s suggested lifespan of operation.Today at 10:00 fire department crews responded to the report of a Carbon Monoxide detector activation in the Birches neighborhood of Washington Township. The residents noticed the alarm sounding while cooking and evacuated the home after turning off the stove, then calling 911 at a safe distance from their home. When fire department crews arrived within minutes, they performed air metering and discovered high levels of Carbon Monoxide within the home. After identifying that the stove was the appliance in question, crews worked to secure it while also performing ventilation throughout the home, bringing air quality back to a safe environment. Afterwards representatives from South Jersey Gas would perform additional metering and troubleshooting, to ensure safety for the residents.
