Many Apartment Units In Oregon Must Have Carbon Monoxide Alarms Installed by April 1st, 2011
A properly functioning carbon monoxide alarm must be located within each bedroom or within 15 feet outside of each bedroom door in dwelling units containing a carbon monoxide source or that are connected to a common area containing a carbon monoxide source. Bedrooms on separate floors in a structure containing two or more stories require separate carbon monoxide alarms. A carbon monoxide alarm must be installed in any enclosed common area within the building if the common area is connected by a door, ductwork, or ventilation shaft to a carbon monoxide source located within or attached to the structure.
