Carbon Monoxide Incidents

Carbon monoxide, or CO, is a poisonous gas that cannot be smelled, seen or tasted, and can cause death in minutes if it is at high levels.  Carbon monoxide can quickly build up to unsafe levels in enclosed or semi-enclosed areas.

You can learn more about carbon monoxide at Healthy Homes - Carbon Monoxide, brought to you by the Tennessee Department of Health.
