    PREVENTING CARBON MONOXIDE POISONING

    • Service all heating systems and all gas-, oil- or coal-burning appliances by a technician annually.

    • Install a battery-operated and electric-powered carbon monoxide detector in your home and check or replace the battery when you change the time on your clocks each spring and fall. If the detector sounds, leave your home immediately and call 911.

    • Contact a doctor if you believe you have carbon monoxide poisoning.

    • Do not use gas-powered devices such as a generator, grill or stove inside your home, basement or near a near a window or door. Generators should be operated more than 15 feet from the home.

    • Do not run any gas-powered motor inside a closed structure, such as a garage.

    • Do not heat a home with a gas oven.

  • Flood water sensors that look like pipe bombs
    Mar 25, 2014

    FYI, from Michigan State Police

    Flood Water Sensors

    As we approach flood season, I thought I would resend this one:

    Attached is an updated bulletin regarding flood water sensors which have been placed in various locations to measure flood water levels by the United States Geological Survey. As you can see, the items could be mistaken as some type of improvised explosive device so their discovery could generate a law enforcement or fire response depending on which agency has marine capabilities. Situational awareness should still cause one not to approach an unknown device of this nature without first confirming, through appropriate sources, the location of these sensors.

    The closest one to us is at the river, Inkster south of Joy. See http://water.weather.gov/ahps2/index.php?wfo=dtx
