Islip Town Urges Carbon Monoxide Safety As Temperatures Expected to Plummet

Islip, NY – With further winter weather and frigid temperatures being predicted over the next several days, the Islip Town Board urges residents to be extremely mindful of proper carbon monoxide (CO) safety measures. Safety precautions can reduce the risk of carbon monoxide poisoning and potentially save lives. Islip officials also emphasize the importance of having carbon monoxide detectors in dwellings, citing a recent incident in Bay Shore, where nearly a dozen individuals suffered carbon monoxide exposure and needed to be relocated from their homes.

Islip Town Councilman Steve Flotteron commended the Town’s Fire Prevention Division for its decision to outfit fire marshals with individual carbon monoxide detectors. This initiative was instrumental in detecting carbon monoxide levels at a Bay Shore dwelling, where Fire Marshal Michael Ippolito responded to an unrelated call. When his device activated, Fire Marshal Ippolito notified the local fire department, which upon arrival and inspection, confirmed the presence of carbon monoxide. These devices have proven successful on at least three separate occasions since fire marshals began wearing them in 2014.
