Change of Ownership
I understand that any change of ownership or occupancy (including the storage of personal property) may not occur, prior to a successful inspection AND possession of a Certificate of Smoke Alarm Certification (passed inspection). Furthermore, I understand that if there are any changes of ownership or occupancy (including the storage of personal property), without this required inspection, the owner (will, shall, or may) be subject to a penalty of not less than $100 or more than $2,500 per occurrence (N.J.A.C. 5:70-2.3).
ReInspection and No Show
I understand that a fire inspector from the Winslow Township Fire Prevention Division will inspect the dwelling unit during the given block of time referenced below. If the assigned block of time is missed by the applicant or the applicants’ agent, a non-refundable $35.00 fee must be paid. I also understand if I do not pass the inspection I must pay a non-refundable $35.00 re-inspection fee and contact the Fire Headquarters to schedule (609)561-4225 x 10.
Information on Smoke Alarms
I understand that if the home to be inspected was built with AC powered smoke alarms within the dwelling unit they must be installed and maintained in accordance with NFPA 72. I understand that all AC powered smoke alarms must be electrically inter-connected. I understand that each level of the dwelling unit is required to have either an AC (electric) or a DC (battery) powered smoke alarm installed. I understand that the table below provides me with the requirements of the Construction Code regarding the number of and type of smoke alarms that are required based on the year the dwelling unit was built or CO (Certificate of Occupancy) was issued. I understand that it is required that all smoke alarms should be less than 10 years old. The realtor, owner, seller or buyer must physically take the smoke alarm down and look for a date on the back. If there is no date, you must call the manufacturer to determine the date. Any house equipped with a low voltage fire alarm system (installed by an alarm company) must have that system tested and approved by an alarm contractor prior to the inspection date. A copy of the alarm certification provided by the alarm contractor must be presented to the inspector at the time of the inspection.
Minimum requirements of smoke alarms and location of installation: Pre 1975 DC powered smoke alarm on each level including basement (if applicable). 1975 – 1977 AC powered smoke alarm on uppermost level (DC smoke alarm on all other levels). 1977 – 1983 AC powered smoke alarm on uppermost and basement level (electrically inter-connected) (DC smoke detector on all other levels). 1983 – 1991 AC powered smoke alarms on every level (electrically inter-connected). 1991 – Present AC powered smoke alarm with battery backup on each level and in each sleeping area (bedroom) (electrically inter-connected)
Information on Fire Extinguisher
I understand that a fully charged & working fire extinguisher with a rating of 2A:10 BC and a maximum weight of 10 lbs. must be installed in the kitchen or within 10’ of the kitchen. It shall NOT be located behind doors, in cabinets or under counters and shall be properly mounted no less than 6 inches off the floor, no higher than 5 feet to the top of the unit. It shall be visible and readily accessible for occupant use. Fire extinguisher must be less than 1 year old.
