New MD Law for Smoke Alarms

A new MD law went into effect on January 1, 2018. This Maryland Law states that a smoke alarm shall be present and working on every level of your home. Additionally, once your current 9-volt battery powered alarm reaches its 10-year life span than it must be replaced with a 10-year, sealed long life battery, with hush feature smoke alarm. The new 10-year alarms are available at local home/hardware stores and on-line. See the following links for more information.
