All Gainesville schools to get carbon monoxide detectors

By The Associated Press
GAINESVILLE - Gainesville school officials are vowing to install carbon monoxide detectors in all school buildings by the end of the week after the gas sickened more than 40 students and some adults in Atlanta.<br /> <br /> They said Tuesday the system already uses carbon monoxide detectors at its newer schools and in areas of higher probably of leaks, such as near gas lines.<br /> <br /> Keith Vincent, maintenance and operations director for the system, says his crews will have battery-operated detectors installed in all schools -- older buildings and newer ones -- by the end of the week.<br /> <br /> Georgia law does not require the detectors in schools, but some districts are considering adding them after Monday's leak at Finch Elementary School in southwest Atlanta.
