New Carbon Monoxide Alarm Law
September 14, 2019

For those that may not have heard, GWGVFD would like to inform residents that a new carbon monoxide detector law became effective in July 2019. The new law requires many existing single-unit, two-unit and townhouse dwellings to have Carbon Monoxide Alarms located outside sleeping areas and on every level of a home.

The new law requires all single, two-unit, and townhouse dwellings built before 2008 that have a fuel-burning appliance, fireplace or attached garage to install and maintain Carbon Monoxide Alarms beginning July 1, 2019. Maryland State Law has required Carbon Monoxide Alarms in newly-constructed homes since January 2008.
