- At Home
As parents, we do everything that we possibly can to keep our children safe. Unfortunately, there are times when the most dangerous things can go unnoticed. California has passed a law to help keep families protected from one such danger: carbon monoxide (CO). Effective July 1st, 2011, it is mandatory for all single-family California homes to install CO detectors in their homes. Although it may not be a law in all states, having a CO detector in your home can help you to keep your family safe.
