LEARN BY DOING
“My daughter had put some coal in my wood stove without my knowing about it. I woke up in the middle of the night to a strange beeping noise. At first I didn’t know what it was cause I had never heard that sound before. Then I realized it was the carbon monoxide alarm that I got at the Red Feather weatherization workshop. I quickly woke up my grand kids and we all went outside. It’s a good thing because the kids were complaining about headaches and feeling sick. I’m glad for the workshop and the kit that Red Feather gave us. It probably saved our lives.” Lula Nez Tsosie, Cameron Chapter Farm Board Representative
