PALM SPRINGS SMOKE ALARM REQUIREMENTS UPDATE
Effective January 1st, 2016, the California Health and Safety Code related to residential smoke alarm requirements in the city of Palm Springs will be changed. Smoke alarms will be now required inside all sleeping rooms in the city of Palm Springs regardless of the year of construction.
The Palm Springs Fire Department is allowing a three-month implementation period for this new regulation. While the enforcement of the requirement does not techincally go into effect until April 1st, 2016, any smoke alarms not present in sleeping rooms after that date will result in a failed inspection, so it is highly recommended that agents implement the new requirements immediately.
