SMOKE ALARM TESTING & REPLACEMENT BULLETIN (June 2012):
Smoke alarms are crucial to the safety of you and your loved ones. As of June 2012, smoke alarms that are found in suites of a residential (or hotel) occupancy need to be replaced if they are ten (10) or more years old. The Bulletin (issued by the Office of the Fire Commissioner) detailing the required replacement and maintenance of residential single & multi-tenant occupancies is located HERE!
Surrey Fire Service Requirements for Smoke Alarm Replacement:
The City of Surrey has mandated that ASTTBC Registered Fire Protection Technicians document smoke alarms older than ten (10) years as deficient on your annual report. A copy of any annual fire equipment test report that contains deficiencies must be provided to the Surrey Fire Service. For more information, please contact Captain Peter Choy at 604-543-6762.
