2014 Smoke Alarm Updates Minimize
Effective July 1, 2014, all battery powered smoke alarms or combination (smoke & CO alarms) must contain a sealed 10-year battery. The CA State Fire Marshal recommends replacing all smoke alarms every 10 years, and testing those alarms twice a year to ensure proper operation. For best results, install smoke alarms in each bedroom and on each level of the home. Also effective July 1st, 2011 all homes are required to install carbon monoxide alarms. Carbon monoxide is the #1 cause of accidental poisoning deaths in the U.S.For more details on the new smoke alarm and carbon monoxide alarm legislation, please click the document link above, or visit the Office of the State Fire Marshal's website at www.osfm.fire.ca.gov.

SCAM ALERT - Beware of False "Firefighter Charity" Calls Minimize

Residents of Aptos and the surrounding area are being targeted by a phone scam operation.  Callers claim to be firefighters with the Aptos/La Selva Fire District, who are collecting money for a Burn Foundation (or other) charity cause.  We urge the public to NOT give any credit card information, bank numbers or other personal info to these callers.  They are not associated with the District in any way, and local law enforcement has been alerted to the issue.  These callers seem to be using rotating cell phone numbers with a local (831) area code, which disconnects immediately after calling.


Changes to 2010 Legislation Minimize
As of July 1st 2011 the Carbon Monoxide Poisoning Prevention Act of 2010 went into effect. The act requires that all single-family dwellings have a California State Fire Marshal approved carbon monoxide detector installed. In addition, all other dwelling units will be required to do so on or before January 1st of 2013. More information is available in the document listed below.
