Certificate of Smoke Alarm, Carbon Monoxide Alarm, and Portable Fire Extinguisher Compliance

Don Devlin, Fire Marshal  (973) 475-7132;

State law requires an inspection of the smoke alarm(s), carbon monoxide alarm(s), and portable fire extinguisher(s) before the sale, transfer or rental of residential property can occur. N.J.A.C. 5:70-4.19

Inspections are performed by the Borough's Fire Marshal every Wednesday from 9:00 am to 12:00 noon. Certificates are issued on site at the time of inspection, and are valid for six (6) months or until another change in occupancy occurs, whichever comes first.

STEP 1                   Click here for the application, paying close attention to the accompanying instructions regarding the proper type and placement of the required devices.

STEP 2                   Mail or bring your application to the Building Department, along with the applicable fee in exact cash or check payable to Borough of Ringwood.


TIP: We suggest that you not wait until close to the closing to schedule the inspection – if the inspection fails, you will need to reapply for the next available inspection date, and consequently, the closing may be delayed.
