Carbon Monoxide Emergencies

Carbon Monoxide Emergencies

Often called the invisible killer, carbon monoxide is an invisible, odorless, colorless gas created when fuels (such as gasoline, wood, coal, natural gas, propane, oil, and methane) burn incompletely. In the home, heating and cooking equipment that burn fuel can be sources of carbon monoxide.

CO enters the body through breathing. CO poisoning can be confused with flu symptoms, food poisoning, and other illnesses. Some symptoms include shortness of breath, nausea, dizziness, light headedness or headaches. High levels of CO can be fatal, causing death within minutes.

Safety tips:

CO alarms should be installed in a central location outside each sleeping area and on every level of the home and in other locations where required by applicable laws, codes or standards. For the best protection, interconnect all CO alarms throughout the home. When one sounds, they all sound.

Follow the manufacturer’s instructions for placement and mounting height.

Choose a CO alarm that has the label of a recognized testing laboratory.

Test CO alarms at least once a month; replace them according to the manufacturer’s instructions.

If the audible trouble signal sounds, check for low batteries. If the battery is low, replace it. If it still sounds, call the fire department.

If the CO alarm sounds, immediately move to a fresh air location outdoors or by an open window or door. Make sure everyone inside the home is accounted for. Call for help from a fresh air location and stay there until emergency personnel arrive.

If you need to keep warm in a vehicle, remove it from the garage immediately after starting it. Do not run a vehicle or other fueled engine or motor indoors, even if garage doors are open. Make sure the exhaust pipe of a running vehicle is not covered with snow.

During and after a snowstorm, make sure vents for the dryer, furnace, stove, and fireplace are
clear of snow build-up.

A generator should be used in a well-ventilated location outdoors away from windows, doors and vent openings.

Gas or charcoal grills can produce CO — only use outside.

When you're digging out from the snow don't forget to clear out your neighborhood fire hydrant. Please clear 3' all around, and a path to the street. Should you or your neighbors have an emergency we want to help as soon as possible. The time we take finding and digging out the hydrant keeps us from doing other things. ... See MoreSee Less

Looking back, and looking forward!

The SVFC hopes the new year finds you happy and safe!

2018 saw the SVFC volunteers and Loudoun County Fire and Rescue career staff answer 6103 emergency calls (2904 EMS and 3199 Suppression). 138 operational volunteers served just under 73,000 "on-duty" hours (not including training, meetings, etc.) this year. That's more than 3000 days or 8 years. Following a corporate 40 hour workweek it would take 1 individual over 35 years to reach that total! We had 22 members with over 1000 hours (one with more than 2000), and our "top 10" put in just under 15,000 combined. Our associate members also put in a lot of time doing public events, fundraising activities, and all the countless things that need to happen behind the scenes to keep us answering calls for help.

In the year ahead the SVFC looks forward to replacing Tower 611 and the start of construction of our new Sterling Park station. We'll post details about both of these exciting developments as soon as we're able.
