CPSC Carbon Monoxide Safety Tips

Know the symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning: headache, dizziness, weakness, nausea, vomiting, sleepiness, and confusion.
If you suspect CO poisoning, Get outside to fresh air immediately, and then call 911.

– Have your home heating systems (including chimneys and vents) inspected and serviced annually by a trained service technician.
– Install battery-operated CO alarms or CO alarms with battery backup in your home outside separate sleeping areas.
– Open the fireplace damper before lighting a fire and keep it open until the ashes are cool. An open damper may help prevent build-up of poisonous gases inside the home.
– Never use portable generators inside homes or garages, even if doors and windows are open.
– Use generators outside only, far away from the home.
– Never bring a charcoal grill into the house for heating or cooking. Do not barbeque in the garage.
– Never use a gas range or oven for heating.

Proposed Concept Plan for Varna-Freeville Rail Trail

Cornell’s Design Connect Group worked with the community to generate ideas for converting this section of the Lehigh-Valley railroad bed into a recreational trail. Their report can be viewed here. The Town of Dryden appreciates this important contribution by a talented cross-disciplinary team from Cornell University as we continue to consider this trail project.
