Don't let this happen to you, keep your grill a very safe distance from your home and flammable materials

 

 


We have proudly taken delivery of our 2019 4 Guys pumper. This unit will eventually replace a nearly 27 year old pumper when it is placed in service in a few short weeks. Our new truck committee worked hard to spec this unit out for our community to ensure that it will positively impact our residents for many years to come. The body of the vehicle is constructed of stainless steel which fares much better than aluminum in our harsh weather environment. We thank all of the employees a 4 Guys Fire Trucks for dedicating their hard work, time and talent on something we are so very excited about. Stay tuned for more photos soon!

New NYS Law
Requires Smoke Detector Upgrades by
April 1, 2019

 

All smoke detectors sold in New York State

AFTER April 1, 2019, are required to be powered by a 10-year, sealed,

non-removable battery, or hardwired to the home.

This does not affect your currently installed smoke detectors.
Important to note, smoke detectors have an estimated life of around 10 years before they become unreliable.

Homeowners and landlords must upgrade their smoke detectors before selling or renting homes and apartments in New York State.



Breakdown of the new smoke alarm requirements for homes

Effective April 1, 2019, a new NY State law requires all NEW or REPLACEMENT smoke detectors in New York State 

to be powered by a 10-year, sealed, non-removable battery, or hardwired to the home.

According to NYS Law 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."

Homeowners and landlords must upgrade their smoke detectors before selling or renting homes and apartments in New York State.

While these 10-year smoke detectors have a larger upfront cost than traditional alarms powered by replaceable batteries (approximately $20 per unit) the lack of yearly battery changes makes them cheaper over the life of the device.

As with ALL smoke detectors, the Harris Hill Volunteer Fire Company recommends that the 10-year sealed smoke alarms still be tested at least twice each year using the button on the front of the unit to ensure they are working properly.
