another case for pesonal protection
Sad case but it hopefully makes you aware that almost NO buildings
in the US, residential or commercial, have adequate CO protection, are
not required to have periodic maintenance that includes CO testing with a
professional combustion analyzer, no requirement or standard for the
techs using such equipment, no requirement for professional periodic inspection
by qualified inspectors of the venting (because HVAC techs are not so
qualified--trust me!), and the UL listing for carbon monoxide alarms
prevents alarms from sounding until you have CO poisoning (10%
carboxyhemoglobin level). Those alarms are designed to protect you from
CO death--Not from CO poisoning and apparently there were none at this
So, what can you an I do? I wear my own personal
CO alarm, which alerts at 35 parts per million after 60 seconds. It is
an electrochemical sensor and very accurate. I take it everywhere. Note
many of the victims in this case were cops and first responders. We walk
into toxic atmospheres all the time and don't know it. We drive in
traffic, fly in planes, stay in hotels or friends homes, shop at stores,
are admitted into hospitals, etc. but there is only one place where you
will routinely find adequate CO monitoring--parking garages. They are
required to have low level sensing linked to alarms and exhaust fans
depending upon the level. Don't be a victim--get your own personal
protection for everyone one you know and wear it or put it in your
pocketbook. Humans cannot detect CO. Very preventable. BTW, the manager
may have died from the trauma of falling down stairs or even had an MI
We had a similar incident at a local grocery
store where about 30 were transported for treatment. The local EMS had a
personal alarm that sounded when they responded to an elderly lady
collapsed at the bakery. 6 patients were from the attached drugstore
next door. 6 months later, it happened again in the same store from the
same oven! Don't assume anything!
