Smoke & Carbon Monoxide Alarm Regulations

The City of Philadelphia requires owners of all one- and two-family dwellings and small residential care/assisted living facilities (also known as board and care facilities) to install carbon monoxide (CO) detection and alarm devices (CO alarms) in their buildings. The Philadelphia Fire Code mandates installation of CO detection and CO alarms in their building. To find out more about the Philadelphia Fire Code, click here.
