Protect Your Family & Yourself from #CarbonMonoxide Poisoning. Altus Emergency Centers encourages everyone to stay warm safely this winter. Avoid using non-electric heating devices indoors: petroleum, gas, paraffin, oil, coal, wood or charcoal. You can't see, smell or taste carbon monoxide, which is what makes it so dangerous. If you experience the symptoms: a severe headache, nausea, dizziness, shortness of breath and confusion and suspect that it may be CO Poisoning, get fresh air immediately and visit any of our #AltusERCenters in Baytown, Lake Jackson, Lumberton or Waxahachie, TX. We're Open 24/7, No Lines.
