CO Alarm Triggered at Mr. Tire in Montgomery Township

Montgomery Township police and firefighters, and Rocky Hill Fire Company responded to Mr. Tire located in the Princeton North Shopping Center for an activated CO alarm on Wednesday, February 9 at 7:42 am.

Carbon monoxide, also known as CO, is an odorless, invisible gas that can quickly become a health hazard, causing dizziness, headache, vomiting, flu like symptoms, or even death in extreme cases.

Fire personnel detected levels of carbon monoxide in the business, which was temporarily evacuated. There was a small amount of carbon monoxide detected in an adjacent business, which was unoccupied at the time. Fire personnel ventilated the businesses, and PSE&G responded to the scene. Initial investigation determined a possible faulty heating unit as the cause for the carbon monoxide readings. PSE&G remained on scene, and emergency services were cleared. There were no reported injuries, or illness.

The carbon monoxide detector worked! Carbon monoxide is known as the “silent killer” because humans cannot tell when they are around it, but it can be very dangerous and deadly. Business owners and homeowners should check their carbon monoxide detector(s). It is a safety device that can alert homeowners of a CO leak and help them escape a potentially life-threatening situation, like carbon monoxide poisoning.

How to test to ensure your CO alarms are working properly?

It is important to test your detectors monthly to ensure they are working properly. To test your CO alarms, press and hold the test button on the alarm. The alarm will sound 4 beeps, a pause, then 4 beeps for 5-6 seconds. Refer to the user manual for your specific model. If the alarm does not test properly, install fresh batteries, make sure the batteries are installed correctly, be sure the alarm is clean and dust-free, and then test the detector again. If it still does not test properly, replace the CO alarm immediately.

How often should you replace your CO detectors?

If your carbon monoxide detector has replaceable batteries, they should be changed at least every six months. Although you replace the batteries, carbon monoxide alarms don’t last forever. They have a lifetime of 5 to 7 years, but it is important to refer to your user manual. After 5 to 7 years, replace the CO alarm completely.
