requires all existing single family homes to install carbon monoxide alarms.
Carbon monoxide is an invisible, odorless poison that can only be detected with
an alarm. With proper alarm coverage (the NFPA recommends one in
every bedroom and sleeping area), CO poisoning is a completely avoidable
design, the CO400 Battery-Operated CO Alarm offers the most accurate sensing
technology currently available, electrochemical sensing technology, providing
accurate CO display readings for added peace of mind. The model comes supplied
with two AA batteries, making it ideal for hallways or other areas of the home
where electrical outlets are not readily available. This alarm also features a
silence and test feature, which allows for silencing and testing the alarms
simply by pressing and holding a single button. Should a real emergency occur
after being manually silenced, the alarm will activate. In addition, the First
Alert CO400 conveniently displays instructions on what to do when the alarm
sounds inside the battery door and is back by a five-year limited warranty.
