    After what happened at the Merchant Marine Academy with 42 students going to the hospital for Carbon Monoxide poisoning this week, are there Carbon Monoxide detectors in the dorms of the other academies?

    The dorms at Kings Point had been renovated a few years ago and CO detectors were not added to the dorms at that time. This was almost a huge tragedy. Parents at the other academies should be asking this question. The Federal properties do not have to adhere to the the local State building codes, which is what happened at Kings Point. NYS Building Code mandates CO detectors in dorms since 2005.
