Correction to Spring News Letter
April 04, 2019

CORRECTION to an article in the March issue of the Village Update

regarding changes to NYS Law governing smoke detectors:

In the March issue of the Village Update we mistakenly reported that, “Many residents will need to upgrade their smoke detectors very soon.”  We apologize that this information was unintentionally misleading, as the smoke detectors do not have to be upgraded immediately.

A new law did become effective April 1st, 2019, requiring that all new or replacement smoke detectors in New York State be powered by a 10-year, sealed, non-removable battery or hardwired to the home. According to 399-ccc: “It shall be unlawful for any person or entity to distribute, sell, offer for sale, or import any battery operated smoke detecting alarm device powered by a replaceable or removable battery not capable of powering such device for a minimum of ten years.”  The law does not require residents to immediately replace their old 9V battery operated detectors.  You may continue to use the old style alarms for their “useful life”. However, when it does become necessary to replace them, you will need to do so with a ten year, sealed and non-removable battery or have hardwired detectors installed.

Please note that the misleading sentenced was not written in that form by the Building Inspector but was re-worded during the editing process.

We apologize for any concern or confusion this may have caused.
