DO YOU HAVE YOUR CO DETECTOR INSTALLED YET?

firemanA new state law went into effect January 1, 2013 requiring all multi-family units (and all single family homes at the point of sale) to have a Carbon Monoxide Detector installed in the immediate vicinity of the sleeping areas and on each level of the residence.

The media presented this new law as if only applicable to rental housing, however, it was recently made clear when area fire marshals began to inspect and fine owner-occupied condominiums for non-compliance that the new law applies to ALL multi-family units.  Fire marshals began to inspect and fine condominium unit owners last month.  Something to be aware of in any living situation you are in, owner, renter, etc.
