Buildings and Schedule

These inspections are designed to check for life safety equipment and set up. The following are examples of what is looked for/checked.

• Each unit, or floor of a unit, must have working smoke detectors.
Preparation: Check to see if your smoke detectors are working prior to the inspection by using the TEST BUTTON. The detector should go off for a short period of time.

• Each unit must have working carbon monoxide detector(s). Locations are typically by gas appliances such as your stove, hot water heater, HVAC, etc.
Preparation: Check to see by using the TEST BUTTON. The detector should go off for a short period of time.

• Units should not be loaded with furniture, boxes, or other items that would block or impede egress from the unit into the common halls.

• Illegal extension cords and improperly vented hot water heaters seem to be another issue of late.
