From the Office of the Fire Chief

Town of Exeter New Hampshire Official Website

Now that the cold weather is finally here I would like to remind everyone of the importance of having a Carbon Monoxide detector in your home.


Carbon Monoxide is known as “the silent killer” a colorless, odorless gas


We recommend that home owners have their heating equipment serviced regularly. This gas can be produced by home heating equipment that is not running efficiently or by unvented heating equipment in the home..


Each home should be equipped with at least one CO Detector. The detector should be placed between your heating equipment and the area where you sleep. 


If you have any questions on purchasing a Carbon Monoxide Detector or would like any assistance installing a detector in your home please call the Fire Department at 773-6131


Thank you and have a safe heating season.
