NEW YORK - Starting in November, all multiple and private dwellings, in addition to institutional educational facilities, in the city of New York are required by law to install carbon monoxide detectors.
First Alert has donated 60,000 detectors to the FDNY Fire Safety Education Fund to help support compliance to the new law. The company will provide 20,000 detectors over the next three years.
Local Law 7 of 2004 was passed by Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg in May. The law calls for carbon monoxide detectors in buildings types J-1, J-2, J-3, Group and Group G.
