       DO YOU HAVE A CO DETECTOR IN YOUR HOME AND OFFICE?

       Last evening, the EGFD responded to a CO Detector activation in an unoccupied commercial building undergoing construction. Crews found elevated levels of CO throughout the building. When the responder arrived, she informed us that she recently replaced the HVAC system and installed a new alarm this week. She also told us that she had not been feeling well and has experienced dizzy spells while working in the building during the day. The building is being rehabed for a future day care center. If there were no alarms in the building, the results could have had serious consequences. Please make sure you have a CO meter in your home, office or business and change the batteries regularly!
