The known challenges

Assumptions

The biggest hurdle to overcome is the assumptions taking place around carbon monoxide in schools. Check out the Fast Facts page to get your assumptions in check.

Funding

While many schools may want to upgrade systems and equipment, they may not have the immediate funds to do so. How can grants, partnerships come into play?

Old Narratives

The majority of CO understanding is tied to antiquated language in codes, laws and tied, in general, to residential situations. Carbon monoxide safety is decades behind fire safety.

Education + Training

Lack of training requirements for educators and front line school works mean there is no situational awareness around symptoms and protocol 

Aging Buildings + Systems

Maintenance of older buildings and systems often falls by the wayside when it comes to "updates and upgrades" in schools. The problem: the majority of our schools are over 25 years old.

No Transparency

There isn't one place where we can easily view what schools, by state, have CO detection in place (what kind, how many); each state has different requirements and no shared database of incidents

Can you help prevent CO poisoning in schools?
