How to Comply with Updated CO Detector Rules
Carbon monoxide (CO) is a particularly dangerous gas. In addition to being fatal in large enough quantities, it's odorless, colorless, tasteless, and nonirritating. Passed in December 2011 and effective as of April 25, 2012, Local Law 75 of 2011 requires building owners to replace their carbon monoxide alarms regularly, and the first deadline for doing so is approaching in October. The law amends a 2004 law that initially required owners to install these alarms by November of that year.
