  • Smoke alarms in each bedroom???

    Can you tell me if there are towns and villages in Canada, USA or in Europe, known for having adopted a regulation requiring electrical smoke alarms in each bedroom in addition to one per floor?

    Not being up on building codes, I can tell you that all new construction in Ohio requires it. My house has more smoke detectors than I care to admit to due to this.

      Most states in the US adopt some form of the ICC building codes so most of them have required smoke alarms in all sleeping areas since 2003ish.

      The Code is more what you'd call "guidelines" than actual rules.

          Not just the law... its also a good idea.
          I am now a past chief and the views, opinions, and comments are mine and mine alone. I do not speak for any department or in any official capacity. Although, they would be smart to listen to me.

            We teach people to sleep with their doors closed to prevent smoke from coming in but that also prevents smoke from going out and reaching a hallway detector.

            Why not have one in each bedroom?

              This is also why we still have a baby monitor in our five year old's bedroom.

              If you've done this more then a few years you've seen people lose their lives because of the lack of these very cheap devices.

                I am asked to propose a new regulation that would require the presence of smoke detectors in all beadrooms. Someone can help me to find examples of regulations... Looking for website where I would find examples? Even better, a contact in a municipality that applies these bylaw would be great... Thanks.

                      Go to the ICC website and you can check there- also NYS requires them - you can access the Code on line (2007 edition at least), the wording is almost identical to the ICC wording.

                      Why reinvent the wheel.....and at least in NY they are not 'bylaws' (you meant something else perhaps)....it is Law.

                        First, excuse my English, it is not perfect
                        I am Captain responsible for fire prevention for a municipality of 6,000 people. It's true, do not reinvent the wheel and that's why I'm looking on forums outside of Canada, because here it is not yet the norm. When I say that this bylaw is the level of competence that belongs to us (town). For a law, it should be initiated at government level and this may be my next challenge ...

                          What building/fire codes are currently adopted in your province? Even if the requirements you're looking for aren't already there it would still be easier to adopt model language for the same code systems you already have.

                            Could you give me the direct link since ICC gives me a variety of Internet sites unrelated to the topic ... What does the acronym ICC and NYS?

                              We do have the Canadian Code but nothing about smoke detection in bedroom.
