NEW MASSACHUSETTS SMOKE DETECTOR REGULATIONS

By Scott A. Joseph, December 6, 2016

Effective December 1, 2016, new Massachusetts regulations require smoke alarms to be photoelectric or a combination of photoelectric and ionization with a hush button.

In order to comply, smoke detectors that are more than ten years old or those without an expiration date must be replaced.
