Carbon Monoxide Alarms
Protect Yourself From the Silent Killer
Lindsey O’Brien Kesling was 22-years-old when she died in her Scottsdale apartment from accidental carbon monoxide (C0) poisoning.
“Losing a child for any reason breaks a parent's heart, but losing them to something that could have been prevented makes the loss so much heavier to bear,” said Dot Kesling, Lindsey’s mother. She founded the LOK Foundation to raise awareness about carbon monoxide poisoning and how to prevent it.
You need a carbon monoxide alarm if:
- Your garage is attached to your home
- You have gas appliances
- You have a fire place
Signs of Carbon Monoxide Poisoning
It is hard to recognize CO poisoning because symptoms mimic other illnesses and include nausea, headaches, dizziness, weakness, chest pain and vomiting. In more severe poisoning cases, people may experience disorientation or unconsciousness, or suffer long-term neurological disabilities, cardiorespiratory failure or death.
Call 911 immediately if you think you or someone else may have CO poisoning.
