Congratulations to Battalion Chief Duane Woolsey on his retirement after 28 years of dedicated service to the department and people of Salt Lake County and Unified Fire Authority! We wish you a long, healthy, and happy retirement!! ...

⚠️Snow Storm Carbon Monoxide Danger!⚠️

As a result of the snow piling from our recent storm, our crews have responded to several carbon monoxide-related calls due to improper venting of home appliances. When snow accumulates on the vents of appliances, such as furnaces, and water heaters, it can block the release of carbon monoxide (CO), a poisonous gas. This has led to CO buildup in many homes, and can cause CO poisoning and in extreme cases, death.

To prevent these dangers, it's important to keep appliance vents clear of snow and other debris. Homeowners can do this by regularly checking their vents and clearing any obstructions. If snow or ice is a recurring problem, installing vent covers or shields can help protect appliances and keep them running efficiently. Having your appliances inspected and maintained regularly by a licensed professional is also a good idea.

PICTURED: @herrimancity home @unifiedfire firefighters helped clear out. These are outside vents for the furnace and water heater. This style of vent is typical with newer homes with basements.
