What Is Carbon Monoxide, and Why Is It Dangerous?

Carbon monoxide (CO) is an odourless, tasteless, invisible gas that is produced by burning fuels such as propane, natural gas, oil, wood, charcoal, alcohol, kerosene, or gasoline — all of which are commonly used in your home, RV, boat, or business.


Exposure to CO Can be Deadly

CO interferes with the body’s ability to absorb oxygen, which can lead to serious illness, severe side effects, or death.
