22 Hospitalized in Titusville after carbon monoxide evacuation at The Brevard County Sheriff's Complex - 20th May 2011

Workers were allowed back into the Brevard County Sheriff’s complex this afternoon, hours after 22-people were treated for carbon monoxide exposure.

Several employees reported feeling light-headed and were treated by paramedics and at one point Titusville Fire Department crews were preparing to evacuate the 9-1-1 dispatch center, a move that could have affected emergency calls throughout the county, officials reported.

Sheriff’s officials say calls were routed though the Titusville Police Department’s dispatch center.

“Calls were not disrupted. The calls are being funneled through the Titusville Police Department and we are bringing in our mobile command post,” said Todd Maddox, spokesman for the Brevard County sheriff’s office.

The incident was reported at about 9:30 a.m. today at the 700 S. Park Avenue. Read More
