The County of Los Angeles Fire Department advises citizens of a possible scam involving carbon monoxide detectors. A private company has been soliciting residents via mail to purchase a $126 carbon monoxide detector from them or face fines and/or penalties per Senate Bill 183 (SB 183). While SB 183 does mandate the installation of carbon monoxide detectors in all single family residences, no Federal, State, or local government agency (including Fire, Law Enforcement, or Health) are soliciting the purchase of carbon monoxide detectors. Consumers are advised to carefully investigate all mail solicitations and respond cautiously.
