What is carbon monoxide? How can carbon monoxide poisoning be prevented?
Carbon Monoxide (CO) Dangers and Risks
Carbon monoxide is the leading cause of accidental poisoning deaths in America. 65% of CO poisoning deaths are from heating systems. Early symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning are similar to the flu and are often misdiagnosed. Headaches, nausea, fatigue, and dizziness are all non-specific symptoms of CO poisoning.
Tips for Prevention
Install at least one battery powered CO alarm or AC powered unit with battery backup on each level of your home and near sleeping quarters. CO alarms do not last forever! The detecting components will lose their effectiveness after 5-7 years and may no longer detect carbon monoxide. Replace your CO alarms every 5-7 years to benefit from the most recent technology updates.
What do you do if your carbon monoxide alarm goes off?
If you are experiencing any of the symptoms mentioned previously follow these directions:
- Call 9-1-1 immediately
- Go to a hospital immediately
- DO NOT re-enter the home until emergency services has indicated it is safe to return.
If no one is showing signs or symptoms of poisoning follow these directions:
1. Open all windows to get air ventilation.
2. Turn off any appliances such as your gas-fired furnace or a running generator.
3. After the home has gotten ventilation, reset the carbon monoxide detectors.
4. If the detectors do not sound again, call a qualified technician to inspect and repair any problem.
5. Should the alarm sound a second time ( and no one is showing signs of CO poisoning, vent the home and call your local fire department. Emergency personnel will advise you when it is safe to return home.

The village of Waterville is conveniently located in southern Oneida County, 12 miles south of Utica and one mile north of the crossroads of State Route 12 and State Route 20.
Our village was settled in 1792 and was heralded as the Historic Hop Capital of the World. We are known for the notorious family of outlaws, The Loomis Gang and our Preserved Historic Triangle District is listed on the New York State Historic Preservation Register.
Waterville is a village in the very best sense of the word. We are a charming combination of pastoral beauty, historic 19th century Victorian architecture and central New York hospitality. While we strive to maintain the simple intimacy of CNY village life, we are boldly progressive with 21st century ideals infused throughout Waterville.
Our village boasts a cutting edge public library which also includes the Barton-Brown Observatory, home to the Mohawk Valley Astronomical Society. The Village Hall is a modern building whose large community room is the center of activity from Scouts to Senior Citizens. Waterville Central School's facilities are second to none including state of the art auditorium, sports turf soccer/football stadium and cutting edge sophisticated technology labs.
