If you are selling your home, you will need a certificate of compliance that shows your smoke and carbon monoxide alarms meet the requirements for a sale or transfer. The Mass. Department of Fire Safety has a resource guide on Preparing Your Home for Smoke & CO Alarm Inspections.
For scheduling residential smoke detector inspections, call between 8:30 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday to Friday.
Please note the Board of Fire Prevention Regulations adopted revised smoke alarm regulations that go into effect on Dec. 1, 2016. The changes apply to one- and two-family residences built before Jan. 1, 1975 that have not been substantially altered.
