Temporary Suspension of Smoke & CO Detector Inspections

Due to an Executive Order signed by Governor Charlie Baker the requirements of M.G.L. Chapter 148 Section 26F and Section 26F ½ are deferred for up to ninety (90) days after the State of Emergency is lifted provided:

a) The buyer and seller agree, in writing, that the buyer not the seller shall be responsible to equip the property with compliant smoke and CO detectors/alarms and;

b) The buyer agrees to equip the property in accordance with 527 CMR 1.00, Chapter 13.

As a result the Cambridge Fire Department will not be conducting Smoke and CO Detector Compliance inspections until further notice.
