The Freeland Fire Dept. has been informed that borough residents have been approached by chimney cleaning services stating that the department has recommended them to service their chimney. The department does not recommend any specific contractor for chimney cleaning services and if any resident is approached for this work they should contact Freeland Police by calling 911. However as a matter of home maintenance every residence should have an annual heating system and chimney reviewed. The contractor is up to the individual property owner. If there are any questions please contact the station at 570-636-3244

Gas central heating, space heaters, fireplaces, furnaces, wood burning stoves, and water heaters are all leading sources of carbon monoxide. Carbon monoxide can escape if these devices leak or are poorly vented. Exhaust from a car parked in a closed garage can also be a source.
The Carbon Monoxide and Gas Safety Society says that on average, carbon monoxide poisoning kills 40 people a year and injures around 300. But it believes cases are under reported as there is no automatic testing for CO of people who die suddenly.
Symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning
If you have any of these symptoms -- and if you feel better when you go outside your home but the symptoms reappear once you're back inside -- you may have carbon monoxide poisoning.
Call 911 immediately!!!!
