Carbon monoxide sickens scores of students

On October 30, 2015 CNN reported that “seventy-one young students and seven adults were transported to Chicago hospitals after being sickened by high levels of carbon monoxide during the school day, a fire department spokesman said. The first ambulance rushed to Ernst Prussing Elementary School on Friday morning after a student passed out. When these first responders arrived, their carbon monoxide alarms went off — indicating dangerously high levels in the air — according to the Chicago fire spokesman”.Stories like the above demonstrate why it is so important to have carbon monoxide detectors installed at premises which have equipment capable of producing carbon monoxide as a product of combustion.  Yarmus Engineering, P.C. makes it a priority to remain aware and knowledgeable of routine code developments, including those regarding carbon monoxide detection, so that we can keep our clientele informed of such developments which might affect their projects we are working on. Please contact our office if we can be of assistance to you or your clients regarding such matters.
