Carbon Monoxide Detectors (CODs) installed in Waldport Schools following the malfunction of a large heating unit at Crestview School, during which a number of children were affected.
Facilities Manager, Tim Kaufman, personally installed 33 of the 70 Carbon Monoxide Detectors that were ordered from 7 vendors in a rush delivery to be placed throughout Crestview Heights Elementary and Waldport Middle/High School.
After concerns arose from a misfire that emitted diesel smoke from the furnace, Superintendent Dr. Karen Gray made sure to deliver on her promise of “doing everything possible to keep children and staff safe from possible emissions in the future.”
Carbon Monoxide Detectors were fully installed at Crestview Heights Elementary. The remaining CODs will be installed this week.
By the way CODs are not required to be installed in schools in Oregon. However the Oregon Legislature is currently in session so it could be asked to look into the issue.
