A recent report from the Gloucester Times points out that the state of Massachusetts is moving to require carbon monoxide detectors in its public buildings. Although the state already mandates that homes, condos and apartments contain CO detectors, it has yet to make this a requirement for its public buildings, including schools and town halls. Despite the costs associated with fitting Massachusetts’s many public buildings with the carbon monoxide detectors, the overwhelming majority of public officials support the measure.

These officials realize the danger that carbon monoxide poses. As a tasteless and odorless gas, carbon monoxide can be present in any home or business without anyone being the wiser. That’s why carbon monoxide is known around the world as the “silent killer.” The only way to accurately ascertain whether or not it is present at dangerous levels is to utilize carbon monoxide detectors. These detectors work much like a smoke detector, monitoring the ambient air and then alerting those around with an alarm should CO levels reach a dangerous level.

We at Crossfire understand the danger that carbon monoxide poses, as well. That’s why we’ve worked to develop state-of-the-art carbon monoxide detectors that are ideal for protecting any home or business. Made to operate more efficiently and effectively than industry standards dictate, our carbon monoxide detectors also communicate with each other wirelessly, adding an added layer of protection. So, if you’re considering fitting your district’s public offices, or even your home or business, with carbon monoxide detectors, we recommend choosing Crossfire’s top-of-the-line CO detectors.
