CO POSIONING AT THE COMFORT INN

Saturday, November 9, 2013  Companies responded to the Comfort Inn on Route 940 after the ambulance crew reported high levels of CO in the pool area. Lake Harmony Ambulance was dispatched to a person feeling sick in the pool area. Once on scene, their personal CO monitors went off, prompting a response from the fire company. Units detected high levels throughout the building, and determined that the pool heater's exhaust was being sucked back into the HVAC system, causing the high readings. Units from Lake Harmony, Albrightsville and Kidder were on scene for around 2 hours.
