New Smoke Detectors Standards
The State of Maryland recently enacted new Smoke and Carbon Monoxide regulations that the Town of Indian Head must enforce.  These statutes will require replacing existing smoke detectors in existing rental dwellings, hotel/motels, and all new construction.  Older Dwellings that  previously used battery powered detectors are allowed to replace the old units with ones that detect BOTH smoke and carbon monoxide AND use a Ten-Year battery.  Multi-family dwellings and hotel/motels must replace existing battery units with A/C  units.  Specific requirements for detector placement and inter-connectivity for the various units required are found in the legislation. A link to the legislation is Here.

The Town will soon issue conforming ordinances to remain compliant with the State's fire safety mandates.
