Massachusetts Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Alarm Requirements

The Andover Fire Department has constructed a simple matrix to help home owners understand the state law for smoke and carbon monoxide alarms in 1-2 family homes. To assist our clients in the greater Andover Real Estate Market, I am including the Andover matrix. You can also download the state law in PDF form below. For specific questions regarding compliance, contact your local Fire Prevention and Safety Officer with your local Fire Department.
