Programs that pay for or provide carbon monoxide detection devices which can be installed in homes and apartments, especially in areas close to sleeping quarters. The devices may run on household current or batteries and sound an alarm when concentrated amounts of carbon monoxide, a colorless, odorless, tasteless and toxic gas produced as a by-product of combustion, come into contact with the detector. Likely sources of carbon monoxide include fuel furnaces, gas water heaters, fireplaces, woodstoves, unvented kerosene and gas space heaters, gas dryers, charcoal grills, yard maintenance equipment and exhaust from automobile or other vehicles in attached garages.
