Columbia Gas of Pennsylvania Inc., partnered with First Alert and the Fayette County Chamber of Commerce to distribute over 200 complimentary combination carbon monoxide and natural gas alarms to the Uniontown community.
“Carbon monoxide is an odorless, tasteless, non-corrosive gas that can be a by-product of the combustion of ordinary fuels,” explained Columbia Gas of Pennsylvania Vice President of External and Customer Affairs Andy Tubbs. “Carbon monoxide can become very poisonous if it is not vented properly and if allowed to accumulate without sufficient oxygen.”
If families missed the opportunity to pick-up a free detector, Columbia Gas has partnered with First Alert to provide a 20% discount on various carbon monoxide detectors if ordered online at www.firstalertstore.com/columbiagas. Offer expires 1-31-20.
“We are dedicated to keeping our communities safe,” says Columbia Gas of Pennsylvania General Manager Mike Davidson. “One way we do this is by spreading awareness about the potential dangers of carbon monoxide poisoning and odors of natural gas. The best way to know if there is carbon monoxide or any other gases in your home is with a detector.”
“As temperatures drop and we turn up the heat, it is important to make sure your home is equipped with the adequate number of working CO alarms,” said First Alert Director of Marketing Tarsila Wey. “Proper placement and maintenance of CO alarms can potentially help save the lives of you and your loved ones.”For more information regarding the utility’s dedication to safety and community investment, visit www.ColumbiaGasPA.com/givingback.
