Welcome, watchdogs.

CO Safe Schools helps community members who value education, health and safety understand, advocate for and achieve CO-safe school campuses.

If I were to ask you if your school was protected against carbon monoxide danger, would you be able to tell me how and where?

For years, carbon monoxide (CO) awareness and safety campaigns have focused its language around residential properties, only recently moving into conversations regarding recreation and travel. 

This has left an incredible gap in conversation and understanding about the risk of carbon monoxide presence in commercial properties – where people believe they are safe and being cared for – when they're not. 

CO Safe Schools speaks specifically to the issue of carbon monoxide inside schools – commercial daycare, K-12 schools and college and university campuses. Our goal is to create CO-safe campuses nationwide, with your help of course.

Start your CO Safe Schools journey. Which best describes you?

(While it's all important, it first has to be relevant to you.)


Two hundred carbon monoxide incidents in U.S. schools and daycares.

2,400+ injuries of students and teachers on these properties.

Less than 8% were protected with detection devices. 

And the number of incidents keeps growing.

It's time to understand the MODERN RISKS of carbon monoxide in today's educational + care environments.

Our first-of-its-kind Carbon Monoxide in US Schools + Daycares Case Study breaks it down for you.

If it's about the money, consider this: Your school can invest in detection to prevent CO exposure and poisoning now, or you can invest in a legal team to handle the payouts to families of children, staff and community members you've injured on your property later."


Remembering that there are people out there focused on things that no one else has focused on are doing tremendous good kind of lights a fire in me. There's not going to be a national story about how many lives will be saved or serious health problems avoided because of Nikki Zellner's advocacy and all the people who've joined her in thinking about carbon monoxide, but that has absolutely mattered in a really big way. And so that helps me remember that doing your part matters in a really big way."
