Fire / Life Safety
Rancho Santa Fe Security Systems wants you to have a fire alarm system that is monitored. This can be one of the very best ways to take care of your home and prepare for a fire emergency when your home or not. You need to derive an escape plan that your family can easily follow and you should remember pets also. Fire protection starts with good education and this is something that you will want to stress to every member of your family. An alarm will double up your protection and this is another way you can get your family out safe.
California Senate Bill 183 was signed into law which requires the installation of Carbon Monoxide detectors in rental units, and dwellings that are being transferred (sold) by January 1, 2011. It also requires that Carbon Monoxide detectors are installed in ALL homes by January 1st, 2013. Expect to see this new inspection item in your home inspection report. Home inspectors will be required to report on the presence or absence of a working Carbon Monoxide detector just like they report on Smoke Detectors, and water heater strapping. Home Buyers and Sellers will also see this new requirement on Transfer Disclosure Statements. In addition to Smoke Alarms and strapped water heaters, sellers will be required to disclose the presence or absence of a working Carbon Monoxide detector starting January 1, 2011.
Carbon Monoxide detectors can be purchased at your local hardware store
