Resort's Carbon Monoxide Compliance Rate Soars

OCEAN CITY, MD — The Fire Marshal’s office said this week compliance with

the town’s carbon monoxide detector law has quadrupled since last fall.



Ocean City Fire Marshal Sam Villani told The Dispatch

this week he has received compliance reports from 79 percent of the

town’s 32,000 dwelling units (up from just 17 percent in September

2009). Compliance is required under the town’s 2007 ordinance to have CO

detectors installed.



Villani cited this number in response to a complaint from a

non-resident property owner, who argued that a recent letter he received

from the Fire Marshal’s Office informing him that he had a mere seven

days to get his condominium unit into compliance with the code rendered

him unable to comply in such a short amount of time.



“We have been for the most part very lenient with non resident

property owners and their units, especially if no one is occupying the

units currently,” said Villani. “We simply tell them to get that

detector in place and send us the notification as soon as possible, and

certainly, before anyone inhabits the unit.”<a href="http://www.mdcoastdispatch.com/article.php?cid=30&id=8404">http://www.mdcoastdispatch.com/article.php?cid=30&id=8404</a>
