Gucciardo Real Estate Group will give away 300 carbon monoxide detectors at its Latham location between noon and 5 p.m. Thursday.

Anthony Gucciardo, broker/owner of the company, said he wants to both give back to the community and raise awareness about the dangers of carbon monoxide poisoning.

"Over the course of 17 years, we've sold thousands of homes and we still find that many homeowners do not have carbon monoxide detectors in their homes. We want to bring awareness, especially to senior citizens who may have lived in their homes for years and not yet bought a detector," Gucciardo said.

The Gucciardo office is at 1074 Troy-Schenectady Road. If you can't make it, go to and fill out the contact form on the website with your name and address. A detector will be sent directly to you free of charge from Amazon.
