Carbon Monoxide Alarms Required in Washington as of Jan.1, 2013


Smoke Alarm

Bellingham, WA – As of January 1, 2013, carbon monoxide (CO) alarms are required in many residential dwellings in Washington state. For more info about this new law, check out this article or visit.

Carbon monoxide is a poisonous gas that cannot be seen or smelled. It can cause illness and death in some situations, particularly within enclosed indoor areas. Carbon monoxide is produced by fuel-burning appliances, fireplaces and vehicles. The most common causes of CO poisoning are the indoor use of charcoal or gas grills, as well as the running of generators in garages or near air intakes.
