    Wow, I thought these kinds of commercial businesses were required to have an annual state inspection and operational,wired smoke, fire and CO detectors in order to pass state licensing. Lives lost for no good reason!

    I always travel with a belt CO detector. Pool heaters installed indoors are usually the problem. Never take a room next to the boiler room or above the boiler room. If there is a indoor pool heater do not stay in a room above the fist floor.If this happened in the pool area there would be no detectors there.

    Whoever was maintaining that heater is gonna be in a LOT of trouble- rightly so.

    Anyone have a count on how many of these co incidents that have occurred in hotels/resorts the last few years?

    Tim, what association or code keeps detectors out of these buildings?

    Would the pool area have too much chlorine/chemicals and humidity for CO detectors?

    Code requires detectors and it should be part of the fire inspection of the hotels.

    not if it hasn't been touched in over a year (well over a year) or so, the lawyers will be getting their pay on this one.

    In that case, the owners will be liable.

    TSA has questioned me on different things I carry. I can usually quickly explain to them what it does and what it is for. In my brief case I carry a set of manufacturers instructions for the typical devices I fly or ship especially back when I traveled to do training a lot more than I do now.

    I have a suitcase trainer that I use to show different gas heating controls. After 9/11 I had some fun when trying to ship by regular airlines. They would not accept it, went down the tarmac to UPS or FEDEX and they would ship it no questions asked.
