SEAFORD, N.Y. (CBSNewYork) – Officials on Long Island continue to push for laws requiring businesses to install carbon monoxide detectors following the death of a restaurant manager over the weekend.
As WCBS 880’s Sophia Hall reported, the Town of Hempstead supervisor has proposed a new law that would require CO detectors in most town businesses.
“New York State law already requires that all of our homes have carbon monoxide detectors. But places of public assembly, including restaurants, bars, nightclubs, bowling alleys, gyms, churches, movie theaters and catering facilities now will be required to have those carbon monoxide detectors as well,” Town Supervisor Kate Murray said. “Town of Hempstead will be amending its town code to require that all town places of public assembly…they will be required now to install carbon monoxide detectors.”
