District Facilities to be Monitored for Carbon Monoxide

January 25, 2019

Carbon Monoxide detectors are being installed in school district facilities. Coquitlam School District is taking proactive measures to increase safety and reduce the risk of carbon monoxide exposure to students and staff. Carbon Monoxide is an odourless and colourless gas that can be toxic and dangerous to humans.

 

Monitoring will begin as soon as ordered units are received and installed by district maintenance staff. Ivano Cecchini, Executive Director, Facilities and Planning Services, addressed the Board of Education at their regular meeting January 15, 2019 to outline the plan. Board Chair Barb Hobson commented, “The Board appreciates the efforts of Mr. Cecchini and district staff on this project. Keeping students and staff safe by proactively installing this equipment is a positive step forward for the District”.
