Spread the Word
May 20, 2014 - PRLog -- WHAT: Suffolk County Legislator John M. Kennedy Jr. (12th District) and Legislator William R. Spencer, M.D. (18th District) invite you to a Press Conference announcing the implementation of sweeping reforms made in this year to remedy CO Gas leaks; “Steve Nelson Safety Act”, Protection of Front Line Employees, Commercial Carbon Monoxide, & a Suffolk Community College initiative. These sweeping changes were a bipartisan initiative for safety coming in the wake of the tragic death of Legal Sea Food Manager, Steven Nelson. Having been overcome by a concentration of carbon monoxide built up as a result of a faulty hot water heater, Mr. Nelson succumbed to the deadly odorless gas. In addition, more than 20 other restaurant patrons and responders also suffered symptoms of nausea and dizziness.
WHO: Legislator Kennedy, Legislator Spencer and other members of the Suffolk County Legislature, Suffolk County Fire Marshal Ed Springer, Suffolk County Community College President Shaun McKay Bob Williams of Briscoe Protective Systems Inc. and the Long Island Alarm Association, Suffolk County Department of Public Works, and friends and family members of Steve Nelson.
