Smoke Alarm Replacement Reminder for Maryland Residents

Smoke Alarm Replacement Reminder for Maryland Residents

 

The State of Maryland enacted a new law for smoke alarm replacement that took effect on January 1, 2018. All smoke alarms, both battery operated and hard wired, MUST be replaced ten years past the date of manufacture. Additionally, all battery-only smoke alarms must be replaced with "Ten Year Sealed Battery Smoke Alarms."

One of the benefits is that you will not need to replace batteries every six months or so when the alarms chirp in the middle of the night.
