When AntiUSSA and his wife had their close call last month, I know a lot of us told ourselves that we needed to go out and get a CO Detector. It took me almost 3 weeks to get around to it, but I finally did it. This is a reminder to all the rest of you who are still putting it off. Get yours now. Cool weather is beginning to slide in on us, and we're all firing up whatever heating devices we use for the first time. Please keep yourselves safe by installing this inexpensive life saving device in your home. And while you're at it, test those smoke alarms and fire extinguishers. We need to keep our AR15.com family intact! [:D]

I got a combo fire/CO model. Mine blinks green every thirty seconds or so. Cost $50.00!

We've got combo fire/CO detectors here as well. Probably should check batteries though. God Bless Texas

Good for you, and your daughter. Pat her on the back for me, would ya? I'm married to a firefighter, so needless to say, fire scares the hell out of me, too....on a daily basis! You didn't mention any fire extinguishers...do you have any? You should at least have one in the kitchen. I witnessed a kitchen fire at a friends house once. Holy crap, it happened fast! Best to be prepared.

Paul, here in New Mexico it's cold at night, and we need heat, the upside is that the aspens are bright yellow the high mountain tops are covered with snow...the elk are bugling, and the brown trout are biting better at this time of year

I miss SoCal also. We use to go to the beach on New Years day. BBQ during Christmas and Thanksgiving. But alas I'm in TX saving up for my M16 and MP5SD [:D]

It’s not just furnaces. I recall an elderly couple a few years ago that parked their car in their attached garage and inadvertently left it running. The next day they were both found dead in their bedroom.

It is not just cars and gas furnances. In Big Bear Mtns of So. Calif. of the San Bernardino National Forest, a family died of CO poisoning because of a faulty flue in a fire place.
