Data Sources on Carbon Monoxide Incidents

The Fire Protection Research Foundation (FPRF) recently published Carbon Monoxide Incidents: A Review of the Data Landscape by Milke and McAllister. The goal of the research was to identify carbon monoxide incident data sources, the advantages and limitations of these data sources, and trends in commercial occupancy carbon monoxide incidents. Organizations managing carbon monoxide databases include CDC, CPSC, OSHA, and USFA, among others. The report also presents NFPA and ICC code requirements for carbon monoxide detection by occupancy type and compares the requirements against trends in the data. The comprehensive report of findings can be accessed on the NFPA website by clicking here.
