Michigan Department of Health Launches Carbon Monoxide Website

Every year, hundreds of people in the United States die and thousands more are sickened from carbon monoxide poisoning. As a result, the Division of Environmental Health within the Michigan Department of Community Health (MDCH) has developed a new Website (www.michigan.gov/mdch/0,1607,7-132-2945_5105_47260---,00.html) that has information on the risks of carbon monoxide poisoning in the home, workplace, and while on vacation. The site also provides helpful steps that can be taken to avoid being poisoned this season.

The launch of the new site aims to educate Michigan residents on the dangers of carbon monoxide poisoning and on various prevention techniques as it coincides with the frigid winter months. Fuel-burning equipment and appliances, such as furnaces, water heaters, and generators, emit carbon monoxide. If the equipment malfunctions or is used improperly, dangerous levels of carbon monoxide can build up. Michigan residents are at special risk because of the types of equipment used while on outdoor vacations and while inside the home during the long winter.
