Consumers Energy Emphasizes Protection During CO Safety and Awareness Week

Follow Eight Vital Steps to Ensure Safety and Protection

JACKSON, Mich., Oct. 24, 2016 – Consumers Energy is reminding Michigan residents to protect themselves against carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning during Carbon Monoxide Safety and Awareness Week, declared by Gov. Rick Snyder to be Oct. 23-29 this year.

“Carbon monoxide is odorless, tasteless and colorless, and with colder temperatures on the horizon there is no better time to share important information about carbon monoxide and how to avoid becoming a victim of this ‘silent killer,’ the leading cause of poisoning in the United States,” said Charles Crews, Consumers Energy vice president of gas operations.

“We care about the communities we serve, and want people to be knowledgeable, prepared and stay safe whenever appliances are used that can create carbon monoxide.”
