Check your CO Detectors!!!
To all of our friends and families looks like the cooler weather is here. Have you had your heater serviced? How about your chimneys? If you use a wood or pellet stove, be sure to check the batteries in all your smoke and co detectors as well!!!! CO or Carbon Monoxide is a colorless, odorless, and tasteless gas that is a Silent Killer! If your Detector is going off be sure to call the Fire Dept right away. Its better to be safe than sorry!!!!
