City of San Diego Fire Alarm Retrofit Requirement 

Industry , SCRHA Blog ,

A change in state fire code that has been in place for years but virtually unknown is now creating a costly retrofit requirement for many property owners. Legislation was recently passed that requires local fire departments to inspect more residential rentals and provide reports of those inspections to the state. This has triggered the City of San Diego to enforce on the fire alarm mandate.  

SCRHA has compiled resources to help property owners and managers navigate the process.
