Carbon Monoxide

Recent Events in Suffolk County, NY have prompted many Local AHJ's to initiate requirements for the Commercial Installation of Carbon Monoxide Detectors. Politician's, of course, reacted in a knee-jerk fashion to pass legislation, before adequate review of Ul, NFPA, and Installation Standards basically to keep the public off there backs and appear to look like they are on the ball. Issues that complicate the legislation are: UL Commercial Listing compliance, particularly UL2075 device listing, UL864 Fire Control Equipment interfacing, 61010-1, and 1064. NFPA 720/2012 Install standards are not even addressed. We are assisting the Town of Brookhaven Fire Prevention Offices in their effort to come up with Local Ordinance requirements for complying with a Town Law that will inevitably be passed tonight. Pertinent problems still exist that hopefully can be dealt with after the politico's get their way. At issue: Commercial Occupancies without a dedicated FACP: requiring a Listed Control Communicator for those occupancies not having one;
Acceptance of Device and/or Systems that meet the requirements of UL 846 Interfacing; Disallowance of CO ALARMS in Commercial Occupancies; Threshold Standards as per UL requirements, Listed Standalone Devices that meet UL and Commercial Listings, and NFPA 720 Installation requirement compliance. It's going to be a long, tough road!

Gotta luv those customers:
"I didn't here from you, so I ASSUMED
I wasn't being monitored, I installed my own DIY camera system so cancel my monitoring. Oh, and BTW, I don't think I should pay you for the last 2 1/2 years!
Thank God for contracts and collections.
