Carbon monoxide -- CO -- the silent killer. You can't see it, you can't smell it, and it's the #1 cause of poisoning deaths in the world. The people most at risk? Firefighters, paramedics, and EMTs - first responders who are called on to risk their lives to save others, everyday.
It's a medical fact that CO exposure -- even moderate levels - can impact your short and long-term health. This film will motivate you to lower your CO risk by taking important precautions at the scene of a fire, so you can live longer and healthier and be around to enjoy life's most precious moments. Narrated by Randolph Mantooth, known for playing Johnny Gage on the hit TV show Emergency. Content of this video endorsed by the IAFF, IAFC, and FDNY.

This video, The Silent Killer, produced by the IAFF and the NYFD has some great footage and photography to illustrate the dangers for firefighters about Carbon Monoxide. Bringing Randy in to narrate this training video for firefighters, stressing the importance of CO exposure potential for firefighters was cool. We all know him from his acting role on the television show EMERGENCY!. We all should take the six-minutes needed to watch and review this video and the key points it stresses.

Remember, even 24-72 hours after a fire, and when a firefighter has been exposed to CO, the chances of premature death, heart attack and stroke are in many cases associated with CO exposure. 50% of firefighter line of duty deaths are caused by heart attacks. CO exposure is one of the contributing factors that CAN be prevented. Life is to precious to ignore this one folks.
