RESPONSE TO LAST WEEK'S QUESTION 
--------------------------------
 
Mike, 

I read your Q&A about CO detectors. NFPA 720-09 has changed 
dramatically and now requires CO signals to be separate distinct 
signals, falling between fire alarm and fire supervisory. 
See attached- hopes this helps.

NFPA 720-2009, Standard for the Installation of Carbon Monoxide (CO) 
Warning Equipment in Dwelling Units

7.2* General. Connections to supervising stations or communications 
centers shall be in accordance with NFPA 72, National Fire Alarm Code.

7.2.1 Signals
7.2.1.1 Priority of Signals. A carbon monoxide alarm signal shall take 
precedence over supervisory or trouble signals.

7.2.1.2 Carbon Monoxide Alarm Signal Disposition.
7.2.1.2.1 The actuation of a carbon monoxide detector or system shall 
be distinctively indicated as a carbon monoxide alarm signal.
7.2.1.2.2 Servicing of a system in alarm that cannot be reset shall be 
in accordance with Chapter 8 and shall occur within 4 hours of the 
carbon dioxide alarm signal.

7.2.1.3 Carbon Monoxide Trouble Signal Disposition
7.2.1.3.1 Upon receipt of a carbon monoxide trouble signal, the 
responsible party(s) shall be notified.
7.2.1.3.2 Servicing of a system in trouble shall be in accordance with 
Chapter 8 and shall occur within 4 hours of the trouble indication.

7.2.2 Supervising Station. Upon receipt of a carbon monoxide alarm 
signal, supervising station personnel shall perform the following 
actions in the order listed:
(1) Where required by the emergency response agency, immediately 
retransmit indication of the carbon monoxide alarm signal to the 
communications center.
(2) Contact the responsible party(s) in accordance with the 
notification plan.
