STAMFORD, Conn. — All residences in Stamford must have working smoke and carbon monoxide detectors after an ordinance went in effect on Sunday.
“Having properly installed and operating smoke and carbon monoxide detectors - in every residence - will alert individuals and families of smoke and carbon monoxide 24 hours a day, seven days a week,” Mayor Michael Pavia said in a release.
Detectors should be located on the ceiling or wall outside of each individual sleeping area. There also must be a smoke detector in each room and in every story of the residence, the release said.
