Carbon Monoxide Detectors to be Installed in Lifepak Fire Rescue Units

The city of Boca Raton’s Fire Rescue service is advancing all the Lifepak systems with mobile carbon-monoxide detectors. The miniature device could efficiently identify the presence of carbon-monoxide and furnishes security in such environments.

Scott Johnston, chief of division, Boca Raton Fire Rescue explained that the device detects traces of carbon-monoxide and automatically enters into an alarm mode to warn about the situation. Carbon-monoxide is a colorless gas without any odor and can not be identified easily resulting in fatal conditions.

Fire Rescue officers hope that the detectors will warn the emergency team rapidly and the public are also advised to install carbon monoxide monitors in their homes.

Frank Corregio, Boca Raton Fire Rescue’s Public Information Officer mentioned that they are generating awareness among the people by advising them to install carbon-monoxide detecting devices in their garages and in places where generators are operated.The Fire Safety crews in Palm Beach County are examining numerous identical detectors for their utility.
