Are you or your landlord in compliance with Washington’s new carbon monoxide detector law, effective Jan 1, 2013? Carbon monoxide detectors are inexpensive, easy to install, and most importantly, save lives. The Seattle Fire Department has prepared an informative memo regarding the new law’s specific requirements. Even if you are currently exempt from this law, there is no good reason not to have a detector in your home. Please add it to your list of resolutions and make your home a safer place for you and your family (including your four-legged friends).
