The statistics say that about 170 people die each year in the U.S. from Carbon Monoxide poisoning.

Also, The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention say that several thousand people go to hospital emergency rooms every year to be treated for CO poisoning.

These are senseless deaths and injuries and they can be avoided with one little device.

The First Alert Carbon Monoxide Alarm.

This from the United States Consumer Products Safety Commission:

Carbon monoxide (CO) is a deadly, colorless, odorless, poisonous gas. It is produced by the incomplete burning of various fuels, including coal, wood, charcoal, oil, kerosene, propane, and natural gas. Products and equipment powered by internal combustion engines such as portable generators, cars, lawn mowers, and power washers also produce CO.

Now in a travel size, the Travel Carbon Monoxide Alarm can come with you when you travel to check out hotel and motel rooms for CO. It is also a perfect companion as you move into your new dorm room or apartment.

It's easy to use this battery-operated device.

Like a smoke detector, if the alarm goes off, there is a potentially harmful amount of CO in the area or room.

In short, it could save you and your family's life.
