The Lakewood Fire Department was busy over Rosh Hashana, responding to dozens of Carbon Monoxide calls.

Lakewood Fire Chief Mike D’Elia Jr. tells TLS the Fire Department responded to 39 Carbon Monoxide calls, as well as seven that were called in as CO, but had no CO detected, or found to have malfunctioning detectors.

Chief D’Elia Jr. reminds residents┬áto test both their smoke detectors and carbon monoxide detectors prior to the start of the holiday.

“Also, if at any time there detectors go off, they should immediately make notification by either dialing 911 or alert someone (LPD/LCSW) who can make the call to 911 for them,” D’Elia said.

  1. People should remember to leave their kitchen windows open if you leave your stove or oven on. This is proven to work.

    I know we are all sacred of thieves. But,

    Firstly, its highly more likely that a carbon alarm will go on verse thieves.

    Secondly, those windows can easily be picked if a thief wanted to enter anyhow.

    Third , only open the top not bottom window.

    Fourth, put some other obstacle in the way of the window.
