Temporary Smoke Detector Requirements

Emergency Order on Sale and Transfer Inspections
Under an Executive Order that is part of the State of Emergency, smoke and CO alarm inspections for the sale and transfer of residential properties may be deferred until 90 days after the State of Emergency is lifted if certain legal conditions are met. The buyer must agree to immediately equip the home with smoke and CO alarms that meet the code requirements AND submit the signed agreement to the fire department  within 72 hours. 
The Department of Fire Services has worked closely with the Fire Prevention Association of Massachusetts and the Massachusetts Realtors Association to develop a documentation process and approved language that can be found in a form on the Mass. Realtor’s Association webpage.

The Groton Fire Department will resume inspections on June 30, 2020.
