The home in this incident did not have a #carbonmonoxide detector because it did not have gas appliances. However a charcoal grill on the front porch was the CO source that sent the family of five to the hospital. Hopeful for speedy recovery. ❤ #beCOsafe #travelCOsafe ... See MoreSee Less

This week a new law in Minnesota, #SophiasLaw, requires #carbonmonoxide detectors on certain boats, with sleeping quarters for instance. This is the heart wrenching testimony of Sophia's mom about the day Sophia died from CO poisoning on the family's boat. She says "there are no second chances when it comes to carbon monoxide." We agree... #beCOsafe #travelCOsafe ... See MoreSee Less
