Girl Scout project brings carbon monoxide detectors to residents

FALLBROOK – Members of Girl Scout troop 4042 are working towards their Silver Award, which is the highest award a Girl Scout Cadette can earn. They have chosen to raise awareness about the dangers of carbon monoxide in their community, and install carbon monoxide detectors at no charge for those who need them.

Carbon monoxide is a colorless, odorless gas that is produced when a material burns or is released when a gas appliance isn’t working correctly. It also becomes a problem when outside equipment (like a generator or charcoal barbecue) is used inside the home, or a vehicle is left idling in a garage. Early exposure to this gas produces flu-like symptoms that worsen over time and ultimately results in death.

Anyone who needs a carbon monoxide detector, or has one and needs help with the installation, Girl Scout Troop 4042 can help! Fallbrook, Bonsall, De Luz and Rainbow residents can sign up by calling (760) 689-2066, or send an email to [email protected]. They are asked to include their name, address, and a contact number where they can be reached for scheduling purposes.
