Carbon Monoxide Poisoning - The Silent Killer http://www.thesilentkiller.net/
Know the facts about CO poisoning
- CO poisoning can be difficult to detect.
- CO poisoning can present with flu-like symptoms, but it is also possible to be poisoned without having any symptoms at all.1
- CO poisoning puts firefighters at significant risk at the scene of a fire.
- Even mild CO poisoning causes mental confusion, which can lead to poor decision making, putting both the exposed firefighter and others on the fire scene at risk.2
- Mild CO poisoning can also rob the heart and brain of oxygen – nearly 50% of line of duty firefighter deaths are attributed to heart disease or stroke.3 That's why new NFPA 1584 rehab standards support the use of on-scene CO testing.4
- CO poisoning significantly increases long-term health risks.
- Just one severe CO poisoning almost doubles the risk of premature death.5
- Consistent exposure to CO poisoning may cause long term heart and brain damage.6
- Wear your mask during overhaul
