Tickets are available online at or through the Benedicta Arts Center ticket Awareness, alarms Learn about this deadly poison and use CO alarms appropriately In the U.S., carbon monoxide (CO) is the leading cause of poi- soning deaths; 60 Minnesotans died from CO poisoning in the five years from 2006 through 2010. Most recently, a Cleveland, Minn. man became a victim of CO poi- soning as he and a friend worked on a tractor in an enclosed space. Awareness of the characteristics of CO, and alarms that react to the presence of this colorless, odorless killer can prevent such tragedies in homes, garages and other spaces where the gas may accumulate. Carbon monoxide is commonly associated with car exhaust (if you can smell it, you're breathing some level of carbon monoxide) but any inefficient fuel-burning devices can produce CO, including gas furnaces, water heaters and power generators. In homes, garages and workshops without CO alarms, the poison gas can accumulate to a lethal level without warning. Minnesota statute now requires every single-or multi-family dwell- ing to have a UL-listed CO alarm within 10 feet of each bedroom; one office at (320) 363-5777. Because these events have historically sold out, purchasing advance tickets is strongly encouraged. In the Christmas spirit, there will be a Toys for Tots collection before the two "Christmas at St. John's" concerts in the Great Hall at SJU. Please bring a new, unwrapped toy for one of the many needy children in central Minnesota. Performing groups include the Amadeus Chamber Sym- phony, directed by Axel Theimer; CSB/SJU Brass Choir, directed by Dale White; CSB Women's Choir, directed by Brenda Handel-John- son; CSB/SJU Chamber Choir, directed by Theimer; the Grego- rian Chant Schola, directed by the Rev. Anthony Ruff, OSB; the St. John's Boys' Choir, directed by Andr Heywood; and SJU Men's Chorus, directed by Theimer. This year's program features music by Felix Mendelssohn, J.S. Bach, Giovanni Gabrieli, George E Handel, Marc Antoine Charpentier, Richard Strauss, Max Reger, Benja- min Britten, Bob Chilcott and others. Throughout the concert, the. audience will be invited to join all the choirs and orchestra in singing a number of favorite Christmas car- ols such as "O Come All Ye Faithful," "Stille Nacht," "Lo, How a Rose," and others. Other favorites include "Per- sonent Hodie," "Glory of the Father" and Handel's "Alleluia Chorus. prevent carbon monoxide deaths alarm placed within 10 feet of mul- tiple rooms used for sleeping fulfils the requirement. Residents should follow manufacturer's instructions on maintenance and plan to replace alarms every five-to-seven years. If your CO alarm goes off, you should leave your home or build- ing immediately and call 911 from outside. Tell the dispatcher if any- one displays signs of CO poison- ing; they include headache, nau- sea and drowsiness. More seri- ous signs are severe nausea, chest pain, seizures or coma. Pregnant women and people with histories of heart disease or stroke are at greater risk from CO poisoning. These precautions will help protect you and people you live or work with from CO poisoning: All homes should have CO alarms and smoke detectors; both can be purchased at discount hard- ware and building supply stores. Have a qualified technician inspect your furnace and check fuel-burning appliances in the fall. Make sure all fuel-burning appliances are adequately vented and properly maintained. When using a fireplace, wood stove or space heater, provide ade- quate ventilation. Portable propane camping equipment and gas barbecues are approved for outdoor use only. They should never be used inside cabins, tents, fish houses, recreational vehi- cles or boats. Read labels on recre- ational appliances and follow man- ufacturers' operating instructions. If your car is stuck in the snow, clear the tail pipe ofsnowbefore start- ing the engine. Keep it clear if you use the engine for heat. Watch for symp- toms of carbon monoxide poisoning. During power outages, do not use gasoline engines or burn char- coal in enclosed spaces, including a garage, even if the door is open. Do not use gas stoves or ovens to heat living areas. The Minnesota Department of Public Safety Winter Hazard Aware- ness website carries a fact sheet on protecting yourself from CO poison- ing with links to additional mate- rials on home heating issues, pre- venting CO buildup during power outages, and more. The Minnesota Department of Health Indoor Air Unit offers CO statistics along with more advice and assistance. assionate Care Amenities to meet your needs: 3 meals per day & snacks Scheduled exercise and activities Church activities, including mass 3 times/mo.
