Damn. I wonder what the Michigan report on that will be like? "They opened a window, lit a candle and promised that it wouldn't happen again, so it's all good."

Don't the regulations require working carbon monoxide alarms?

At this point, you might be close on what the MI report will say. They give these  programs such slack on the complaints..   >:(

I wondered the same thing on the regs... so far I have not been able to find any specific requirement, neither from Michigan Licensing and Regulatory Affairs (LARA) nor Calhoun County/ Battle Creek. I will dig deeper tonight.

Try Pennfield Township; they might have mechanical inspectors. (Never mind: didn't notice it was the former Tranquility Detox location and not AFR in Pennfield.)

This is the State Law for Michigan:

Quote
Mich. Comp. Laws Ann. § 125.1504d

Requires newly constructed boarding houses, hotels, motels and other residential buildings where occupants are primarily transient in nature to install an operational carbon monoxide device in each area where a mechanism is present that provides a common source of heat from a fossil-fuel-burning furnace, boiler or water-heater.

Local county, city, township, etc., laws can make the requirements tighter, but cannot waive the state requirement.

Time for Michigan LARA (https://www.michigan.gov/lara/0,4601,7-154-63294---,00.html) to get serious about shutting them down!
