Residential Smoke Detector Inspections (COVID-19 Response)
By Chief Christopher DeGrave
March 18, 2020

Due to the unexpected and unprecedented COVID-19 virus, changes have been mandated by the RI Department of Business Regulation and the RI State Fire Marshals Office concerning smoke detector inspections. All realtor or home owners that contact our office to schedule will be asked a series of questions concerning the health and wellness of the occupants. Additionally, all inspections MUST be completed within a VACANT property. If occupants are sick or are unwilling to vacate the property, the appointment will be rescheduled and future arrangements must be arranged. The only person allowed on-site will be the scheduling realtor.

This is an ever-changing situation however, we will continue to provide the utmost professional and timely service that our community expects, while ensuring the safety of our first responders.

Please contact our office at 401-322-0577 or Email: to schedule. Our inspection day will remain on MONDAYS as normal.
