Smoke Detector Policy

In recognition of the importance of properly operating smoke detectors to the health and safety of tenants, and that both the FHA and tenants have an obligation in this regard, the following policy is herewith adopted:

  • At each annual recertification tenants shall be provided with a copy of MGL Chapter 148 & 27A and the Smoke Detector Policy.
  • At each annual unit inspection, smoke detectors shall be tested to assure they function properly.
  • Any missing, damaged or malfunctioning smoke detector shall be replaced as soon as possible.
  • Eviction procedures shall be instituted against any tenant who vandalizes, damages or disables a smoke detector.
  • Any unit that has damaged or inoperable smoke detectors shall be re-inspected at random intervals to assure that repaired and replaced smoke detectors are functioning properly.
