Giving you the information you need about carbon monoxide is the best way to protect you and your family.
That's what a C-O Task Force says in the wake of a carbon monoxide death at a South Charleston hotel.
Task force members have been exploring ways to get out the word about carbon monoxide. The Charleston Fire Department has created a pamphlet that contains information about the dangers of C-O...it's being distributed to departments throughout the area.
Businesses are also getting on board...making the literature available to their customers.
South Charleston and Charleston are both considering mandating the installation of C-O detectors in hotels and motels, but the municipalities are waiting to see what the legislature is going to do. The House is considering a bill to put C-O monitors in several different types of public establishments.
