I just received an e-mail from the Deputy Fire Chief of Barrie.
"Roughly 450 – 500 homes a year are bought and sold in the city of Barrie, which leads me to believe that 450 – 500 homes have some kind of house inspection done for the purchase, insurance purposes, or mortgage purposes. That is a lot of homes that home inspectors could be ensuring as part of their inspection that the home is brought into compliance with smoke and carbon monoxide alarm legislation. Ensuring there are enough alarms, and ensuring they are the right type for the home, and ensuring they are current (less than 10 years old according to the manufacturing date stamped on the SA). "
Could any Inspector in the Barrie, Ontario area who wishes to get involved in the program please get in touch with Jeff Weber.
