Update on Northland Ice Center and Current Evendale Legislation

Evendale, Cincinnati, OH / USA – Monday March 13, 2017

The rink managers and local organization representatives have held three personal meetings over past few days regarding the recent news regarding The Evendale Fire Department wanting the village council to approve an [emergency] ordinance regulating air quality for indoor ice rinks. Rich Szturm (President) stated that today the Evendale Fire Chief came into the facility to explain everything and also reassured that [Northland] was compliant and only need to add a Nitrogen Dioxide monitor. He also reassured Northland Ice Center that their facility has not had any problems and there should be none regarding this legislation.

Regarding compliance of Evendale Ice Rinks, it was mentioned that facilities would have at least 30 days to adopt the changes. The Chief said the Fire Department doesn't even have Nitrogen Dioxide detectors available currently and is ordering them. Northland Ice Center has had a Carbon Monoxide monitoring system since 1993 which was upgraded in 2007. Rich states that it gets calibrated every six months and our highest reading was Sunday night after a staff member edged the ice after the last event then cut it 2 times which the Carbon Monoxide meter read 5 ppm which is well below 30 ppm. Typically after an average ice cut, the reading will be 3 or 4 ppm.

Rich declined comment regarding other rinks in the city of Evendale.

With the availability for ice in the Cincinnati area already being very limited due to the recent closure of the Cincinnati Gardens, this is an important topic for the Cincinnati area, especially, teams, parents of high school, travel and collegiate hockey teams, figure skaters and over 1,000 adult recreational ice hockey players that this is addressed in a professional and responsible way.

“The ice rink owners are not opposed to monitoring and measuring carbon monoxide (CO) levels, one of the requirements in the proposed Evendale ordinance. They already do this. They say that they stay within guidelines established by OSHA and the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) relating to the indoor operation of equipment, such as forklifts.” Says Cincinnati Enquirers Sheila Vilvens
