National Capital Poison Center

Everyone should have the number for the National Capital Poison Center near their phone. It is: 1-800-222-1222.
To visit their website go to:

There is an audio card you can email friends and family there to remind them to keep this number on hand.

I also want to stress that no home should be without a Carbon Monoxide Detector.Quite a number of years ago when we were living in a condo we put one in the kitchen near the laundry room where the furnace was located. It went off the very next morning due to a cracked heat exchange in furnace. We opened all the windows and turned off the furnace. We were all OK. Luckily, it was when we had just started to use the heat for the season. I shudder to think what may have happed had we not had a CO Alarm.
Depending on the size and the configuration of your home, you may need more than one.
