Nassau County Legislator Richard Nicolello and Nassau County Executive Ed Mangano recently announced the approval of a new life-saving law that requires carbon monoxide detectors in all new and existing commercial buildings within Nassau County. This new law better protects Nassau residents from potentially tragic situations, such as the one that recently occurred at the Legal Sea Foods in Huntington Station.

Carbon monoxide is odorless and colorless, and is often a byproduct of fuel burning appliances, such as those used for cooking and heating. Statistics from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) indicate that nearly 400 Americans die from unintentional carbon monoxide poisoning each year.

“This legislation expands the law to protect employees and patrons of Nassau’s commercial buildings and can help save lives. I want to specifically thank Chief Scott Tusa and Assistant Chief Mike Uttaro, of the Fire Marshall’s office, for helping to craft this legislation,” stated Legislator Nicolello.

Nassau County’s Fire Prevention Ordinance now contains the most comprehensive and complete carbon monoxide detection law in the United States, as it pertains to instructing business owners and alarm installers how to install and maintain these lifesaving devices to protect Nassau’s residents.
