One of the first places I tell my students in Carbon Monoxide class to check is the school their kids attend. In my 34 years of testing, schools still rank as Number 3 on my most dangerous building list.
Atlanta school administrators had their maintenance people tear down the boiler before the state inspectors could check it for the problem. The boiler had been serviced two days before the incident.
NO SERIOUS INJURIES!!! 6 children were carried out unconscious!! Stupid reporting or just a cover up??
News from Albuquerque, NM shows a technician testing all their equipment. But in the video he is testing in the wrong location on one piece of equipment and doesn't have a clue what the readings mean.
One doctor reported that CO starts to hurt you at 50ppm. Yeah if you work in an industrial plant which is the OSHA standard. Of course all the alarms that might be installed won't go off until they hit 70ppm for at least an hour. They would be much safer in a parking garage.
Too often I read stories about poisonings within days after equipment was serviced. Makes one wonder if they would all be better off if no one touched it or what does a "Qualified Contractor" really mean. Apparently if you have a combustion analzyer, have a HVAC license and are EPA Certified you must be good!
The CO stories in the news all over the country after this school poisoning are just as horrible as they were 30 years ago. In is a shame that in the year 2012 the ignorance about CO hasn't changed.
