There have been a number of unfortunate stories in the news lately of travelers being killed by carbon monoxide leaks – so I bought Small travel carbon monoxide detector For my family and our travels. We often AirBnBs with the kids (and sometimes the grandparents), and to be honest, I hadn’t considered if the carbon monoxide alarms worked in the house. (The people in our house beep relentlessly if the batteries are dead…which means I can see some travelers disabling them instead of replacing the batteries the way a homeowner might).
(In at least one of the stories I’ve heard, it was a carbon monoxide leak at a sanctuaryso this is not just a rental issue…)
I like that this device is under $25, and can be plugged into an outlet and batteries in case the power goes out. I just got mine so we haven’t tested it yet.
Question for those who travel more (or more safety conscious in general) – do you have a safety checklist for when you arrive somewhere new, such as checking if there is a working fire/carbon monoxide detector, or familiarizing yourself with where the fire extinguishers are? I’ll admit that my “safety checklist” in the past consisted mainly of more childproofing-type things when we were traveling, like putting makeshift bumpers on sharp edges and plastic plug-port covers.)
