MARCH 15, 2019: CARBON MONOXIDE SAFETY
Often called the silent killer, carbon monoxide (CO) is an invisible odorless, colorless gas created when fuels (such as gasoline, wood, coal, natural gas, propane, oil and methane) burn incompletely. In the home, heating and cooking equipment that burn fuel can be sources of carbon monoxide. The dangers of CO depend on several variables, including the person’s health and activity level. Infants, pregnant women, and people with physical conditions that limit their body’s ability to use oxygen can be more severely affected by lower concentrations of CO than healthy adults would be. A person can be poisoned by a small amount of CO over a longer period of time or by a large amount of CO over a shorter amount of time.
MARCH 8, 2019: CPR AT INCLINE MIDDLE SCHOOL

One of many programs offered by the Fire District’s Community Safety & Education Team, the students will learn rescuer skills in CPR and relief of foreign-body airway obstruction as well as proper usage of the automated external defibrillator (AED) which is used for victims of cardiac arrest.
