ATLANTA (AP) - Starting Jan. 1, a new rule will require carbon
monoxide detectors in many Georgia homes.

The change to the Georgia Department of Community Affairs
construction code affects all new one and two-family homes and
townhouses of three stories or less.

The code change means Georgia joins 15 states with carbon
monoxide detector-related statutes. Those include Florida and
Virginia.

An August 2008 Centers For Disease Control study cited exposure to high levels of carbon monoxide as a leading cause of unintentional poisoning deaths in the nation.
