Carbon Monoxide (CO) Safety
DID YOU KNOW?
CO is often called the silent killer because it is odorless, tasteless and undetectable.
CO is produced anytime a fossil fuel is burned. Potential sources include gas or oil furnaces, water heaters, space heaters, clothes dryers, barbecue grills, fireplaces, wood-burning stoves, gas ovens, generators, and car exhaust fumes.
At high concentration levels CO can be fatal in minutes. Rapidly accumulating in the blood, CO binds to the hemoglobin in your bloodstream, which displaces the oxygen that cells need to function.

Every year there are people in BC who are seriously injured by fireworks. The Office of the Fire Commissioner and Prince George Fire Rescue Service encourage people to enjoy public firework displays put on by trained personnel, rather than using consumer fireworks. A copy of Consumer Fireworks Safety Tips can be found below in our documents section.
The City of Prince George has a municipal duty to provide for a regular system of inspection of hotels and public buildings. The Fire Prevention Branch has the responsibility to ensure this obligation is met. We often find that the property owner or owner's authorized agent are unsure of their responsibilities. The property owner or owner's authorized agent are responsible for complying with the requirements of the BC Fire Code. To assist the owners and their agents we have put together some 'checklists' which highlight some of the main concerns. These checklists cover buildings which fall into the A, B, C, D and E occupancy classifications. You will find these checklists in the "Documents" section below.
