Fire Inspection 2016 Changes | Charlestown RI 02813
New changes that will impact any Charlestown RI home sale in 2016 on smoke/carbon dioxide certificates to be issued are noted here. As you may be aware a smoke/carbon dioxide certificate must be obtained and supplied to the closing attorney prior to a house closing by the sellers. The following changes are being orchestrated by the Dunns Corner Fire District which services these areas to help emergency personnel respond quicker to a home emergency.
The changes are as follows, and any questions should be directed to your local Fire Chief:
1. House numbers must be on the front of the house.
2. House number must be at the street level also on the mailbox or property line.
3. Numbers must be at least 4 inches tall and contrast with the color it is affixed to on the house and/or mailbox.
4. House number and street name needs to be posted by the telephone in the interior of the home (where land line is, if applicable) for emergency reference.
The fire chief will not pass a smoke/carbon dioxide home inspection if, besides the smoke/carbon detectors being current and working, any of the 4 above items are not additionally met. Take this to heart and make the necessary changes to your property now.
Any questions can be directed to the Dunns Corner Fire Department at 401-377-0577.
