Meeting to address CO concerns

Concerned about a series of carbon monoxide-related calls this summer, Baltimore County fire officials will hold a town meeting at 7 p.m. today in the Cove Village area to educate residents on how to prevent CO poisoning.

The meeting at the Middleborough Volunteer Fire Department, 1913 Middleborough Road, is co-sponsored by Sawyer Realty Holdings Co., which manages the 94 townhomes in Cove Village.

Residents are urged to attend the meeting to learn about Sawyer's plans for abating the CO problems and to share questions and concerns. Firefighters will distribute literature about carbon monoxide poisoning.

In 2005, three members of a Cove Village family died of carbon monoxide poisoning.
