CO Detectors Now Required in Akron Residential Buildings

AKRON, Ohio (News Talk 1480 WHBC) – With the carbon-monoxide death of a 66-year-old woman in an Akron apartment building last month, a new law requiring CO detectors in residential buildings in the city has taken effect.

The Akron Fire Department and building officials can now cite building owners and landlords for not having the life-saving devices.

Fines and potential criminal penalties may result.
