8:00 pm
want to talk about the procedure with the san francisco planning department which incorporates the department of building inspection it let you know the adu's 123450r79 would program or process you are utilityizing not over-the-counter they're in take they're routed to my team the flex team so we try to move as quickly as possible there are a lot first step will have with dbi a screening form you fill that out they determine your eligibility for the program after review is complete the permit is route to dbi and fire their, their final checks for those of i want to give you two pieces of information as you perfectly were adding 7 or more
8:01 pm
we have an assessment your no longer requiring that first step for my adu's in a project and also, if you have a perplex project that including an adu or several adu's we now updated the projects with the request forms that is available on the san francisco planning department and a special check box will be routed to the flex team and a specialized planner to provide input it is available for a fee but a specialized and technical type thing with the application so once your permit gets to planning i'll can you talk about that what we'll be reviewing your permit for the program highlights are as follows: one, we'll be looking at the adu and whether it is
8:02 pm
being proposed within the existing build out envelope unless under the new program a single-family homes and doesn't need a waiver and second we'll be reviewing for the adu that is not taking space from an existing dwelling unit unless under the new components of the program it is a single-family home and didn't require waivers 3 we'll be looking at the number of adu's that are proposed that will vary and again, i'll go into more details on the next slide number 4, is the adu is being proposed in a building had that as rent-controlled units restrictions er with the rent ordinance and fall under those controls and 5 the we'll review for components that can be waived under the planning code that are several the ada program
8:03 pm
allows for the zoning administrator to waive and then once all our review is finalized routed back to dbi and they'll review their review. building and fire and other components in addition, i wanted to mention there are ejection controls related to the implementations of adu on a property the program can't be useded on buildings with onsite and offsite eviction or other no-fault evictions in 10 years prior to the applications >> let's talk about the expansion for adu's again, i mentions in the beginning there are basically 2 programs for the adu's at this time due to the new program implemented that week for misrepresent unit buildings and single-family homes that require waivers basically how the fireman has existed in september of 2016 it
8:04 pm
is the same expansion so the dwelling units can the building is under going seismically work can be raised up to 3 feet to allow the eninsertion of think adu has to be in place 3 years before filling of the adu a second area with the single-family homes that requires waves to add the adu allows for some is expansion minor expansion within the envelope as it existed in 3 years from filling of the permit as shown on the screen those areas are under a room under a deck and an in fill into
8:05 pm
lightwells all of these areas require neighborhood notification under planning code section 311 and 312 those components that work in the program have not changed and the next slide talk about the changes that are secured effective june ph11 that requir administration waivers now the ability to add afternoon adu created into living areas so the adu can be created from the dwelling unit the definition of existing living area that is in the planning code section 2074 or 207 c-6 the internal habitable not not garage or the accessory area in the main single-family
8:06 pm
home on that same lot an dwelling unit can be proposed within the built envelope of an existing legal auxiliary struck on the lot no matter that has to be legal anywhere on the lot to single-family homes you can add an ada in the main single-family home within that definition of a living area or proposed within an existing accessory structure on the lot there is expanded options second again for single-family home that don't require waivers there is also now expansion permit to create the adu within the buildable area the lot for single-family homes that don't need waivers you can build a horizontal addition
8:07 pm
to create the adu just this requires the neighborhood notification under section 311 and he 12 but to create the adu in a single-family homes you can expand loolgsz as long as the expansion didn't require a waiver that is a big change this is existing let's talk about the number of adu's allowed so with the adu allows you to add adu's and count them by building not by will the but building so we allow if there are 4 or less existing dwelling units one what do 5 or greater existing denials an unlimited amount of adu's as long as they sit in the area and
8:08 pm
meet. >> all the planning code and building code reminders on the topic of number of units i wanted to mention that i wanted you to keep in mind by legislation that subdivision is generally not permitted unless the building a condo something to keep in mind with the adu program parts of planning review includes determining when waivers from the planning code are required in order to approve the project the zoning administrator may wave density, parking, open space and rear yard in order to approve the project in addition the exposure requirement can be reduced by the zoning administrator but can't be completely waved give you a combination of the term of exposure the units assess to sunshine a typical dwelling unit
8:09 pm
must be have a yard 25 feet by 25 feet the reduced exposure that louis for a space that is 15 by 16 feet clear in all horizontal directions projects when is known for projects that reservoir waves and the building include a rental the owner will be required to enter a regulatory agreement with the city with the ordinance so these are the highlights of the accessary dwelling unit program or the adu again, i sent you you're welcome to e-mail that address i will get a response i promise coming from me we also had at
8:10 pm
the planning fog current planners that can answer questions for you. >> and we'll have q and a related to the accessary dwelling units at the end now let's shift to the dwelling unit legalization program again, you can e-mail the cpuc at address and i'll field this program as well so the dwelling unit legalization program has been in effect since 2014 interest have not been phases on the program the general highlights this is a voluntary program there is a limit to the number of dwelling units that can be legal shusz one per lot in a city one unit per lot and rent
8:11 pm
controls if they apply to the building and the units remains as a rental no discussion didn't apply to those units so a little bit about the procedures the legalization zoning permit is not over-the-counter it is an intact and requires that you start at the screening progress with dbi they determine our eligibility and again think intact per planning after we finish our review it is routed to dbi for their review similar to the adu program there are components of the planning code that can be waived although we don't require that a waiver is attached to the project the density and parking and cleanpowersf rear yard and exposure can be waived and other
8:12 pm
projects and that concludes any presentation i'm going to turn it over to jimmy from dbi that will take over on some of the building requirements. >> hi jimmy which you think dbi so, now you've gotten to your permits for a - from the planning department i'll go over some of the highlights building department highlights on what we like to see - was required for the adu let's first finks first, the minimum ceiling height for living room and dining room don't use the california residential 0 code that allows 7 foot it is only allowed in kitchens and laundry rooms etc. a sloping floor or something
8:13 pm
like that ask your design professional to locate the bathrooms and laundry rooms you have 7 foot and were you do have them to put the bedrooms and meter rooms or whatever be creative secondly, like to say that natural light and ventilation is required for more rooms mechanical and go artificial light is in kitchens and media rooms if you have a room that is landlocked with no rooms that can be a home office make sure you don't put no bedrooms you know you should be fine with that talk what the mechanical department how many changes and how much light you need >> next slide, please not all rooms can be a bedroom bedroom requires an emergency
8:14 pm
escape window that in other parts of state requires a 50 foot rear yard minimum or should lead to the street in san francisco we have an information sheet e go 4 for escape rescue windows lead to 25 feet half the distance that help helps and the next thing the walls separating the dwelling unit from each other should be - the walls separating the dwelling unit showing should be one hour rated both next when so next thing when you add aot another wednesday, march 24, 2017, when you legalize or add a dwelling unit make sure the building doesn't exceed the
8:15 pm
tables 504.4 a lot of time a contractor - have a sloped lot what the lowest level is 17 feet and then you think if i add a floor here he can add another unit and you know everything i'm going to be rich but a lot of time this will create a fifth or fourth floor building and for table 504 portfolio 4 you may not be able to do that keep in mind and next thing - i see this a lot of time when people add adus to they're building they take up the corridor hallway from the backyard to the front as part of the new adu space that reduces the number of exits from the
8:16 pm
upper unit so the designers should be cautious where you take that space from a building sprinkler requirement i guess best thing to review sf 05 and partially sprinkler your building that's the best advise if that work for you shouldn't have a problem but be prepared to partially sprinkler your building inspection we offer a preplace of entertainment meeting with the planning department and the fire department it is strongly suggested for safety items that may not meet the letter of the code but the spirit of the code so our dine professionals should look at that if there needs to be a creative solution for your adu next slide
8:17 pm
so things to consider dbi suspends a notice of violation when the owner pursues legalization don't feel that we're going to punish you if you don't legalize in time if you legalize you are in-law unit we'll suspend that so fines don't accrues and things like that that is a load off homeowners back and stuff like that next is legalized dwelling unit if our legalizing a dwelling unit shouldn't take up a common area by other tenants and reduce the services from other tenants and sometimes, we see the storage area from the previous tenant above is taken over by the new adu and they get in trouble with the rent board or the attorneys and stuff like that contacted the rent board
8:18 pm
and the attorneys maybe you come into agreement with the tenants above but that is rent board thing and attorney thing not a dbi thing i like to mention that and next is when all sordz and a new adu legalized adu or dwelling unit the property will be reassessed afterwards i guess property taxes they might help you out one thing i heard if stephanie from the planning department if our legalizing a unit the mroumg system needs to be exposed and the walls need to be opened up when the in law or illegal unit was put in next
8:19 pm
slide, please another thing to consider is when changing from a 2 unit to a 3 unit building fall under the jurisdiction of housing department as well as the fire department that may need annual housing inspection and pefshg heirs inspection by the fire department keep in mind if you have a 2 unit building your jumping into a big league a that building unit now to 4 is not a big deal if you legalized the dwelling unit that will be difficult to remove to legalized dwelling unit because we're in a housing crunch we don't want to loss units whether small or big keep in mind for the long term lastly we always hear when you got a new address you get it after the permit is finished
8:20 pm
after you legalize the dwelling unit or did a dwelling unit that's when you apply for a new street address those are some of things when the planning is approved or adu or in-law unit. >> thank you this is a fairly highly technical presentation we kept it short to allow you guys to ask as many questions as you want i'll ask the first question if you council come in with our zion specialist how long from the beginning to the end. >> thank you for the question jerry so what i am hearing from the professionals in the field is 6 to 8 months. >> if there's my professionals
8:21 pm
in the audience want to add to that i'm open to hearing other information. >> to add to my response what i'm hearing from the professional 6 to 5 months from permit filing to issuance through the entire process yes. yes. 95 months from permit filing to issuance through the entire process yes. yes. months from permit filing to issuance through the entire process yes. yes. >> we're working on methods o stymie. >> this is closely related to the seismic i've not heard of seismic is there no requirements for any kind of seismic what point is the seismic considered.
8:22 pm
>> this is under the foot of building existing and seismic didn't become an issue i guess usually. >> not considered certificate of occupancy and for two it is a change of occupancy didn't add more than one hundred people if you change of occupancy. >> if you elevate the building is that considered an additional. >> may implication if you raise the building the building get taller and, you know, so i don't you know we may is ask for a seismic update but if you're not raising the building the building rates doesn't change you can add our building partitioned. >> your answer you may ask what kind of rule is that you
8:23 pm
asked for a seismic review even a seismic review with the existing conditions. >> i'll say not in the brad to require a seismic upgrade. >> that's the didn't answer my question when it begin was - my southern i'm a construction algeria we're adding residential units in building highly vulnerable to earth earthquakes. >> thank you for an excellent presentation i'm interested in particular what the neighborhood like westwood park and sfansz there are hoa's in place that
8:24 pm
prohibit adu's and yet clerl in the city map west westwood is included can you comment in a homeowner applies to the city they're in the process and approved what effectively will happen to the process where basically the hoa's are in conflict with the city mandates legislation. >> thanks for the question the an interesting question and the city did not you know the easy answer is that the city didn't see enforce the private cc&rs that the hoa's have finding with their ownership so that maybe a matter for the homeowners and the homeowners association to gave me private attorneys to discuss that matter
8:25 pm
the planning department and the city we are in charge of regulating plan use in the planning code and the regulations. >> thank you uh-huh. >> thank you for the opportunities presentation today so my question you mentioned if you add an adu that that will trigger a recliner assessment of property value for that property so i don't know if this question is directed to our department but does that mean when it is reassessed are they going by the in addition to what the value created by the adu but for the existing property itself okay. so i guess - the best way to explain it i bought any property in 1980 i paid the price of home
8:26 pm
back then if we reassess it raise that to current value is that what do you mean. >> the best answer by the advisors office they don't land and buildings separate but the land is you wanted a little bit. >> that's a big deal. >> if you bought it in 1980 yes, it is. >> before you leave do we have a representative from the advisors office there is a representative from the assessors office that will more accurately respond although i think that jimmy gave a good answer. >> hi, i have a couple of questions for both of you starting left to right with marseille if we're in a 311 and the dr the neighbors don't want us to add a unit does the adu
8:27 pm
trump the neighborhoods dmrament or is that like you are budget committee hypothetical to the neighbors. >> that's correct for the question so the the discretionary review process that is inherent to the neighborhood notification process in section 311 and 12 it is a stand so if the single-family home that didn't require a waves has proposed an expansion that requires a notice process it is runs there the course and the planning commission has discretion over a permit as the members of the public have filed a dr or discretionary review have requested. >> so any room for to the adu or just self-depends on. >> unfortunately, i can't speak on behalf of the planning commission i'm staffed to the planning commission.
8:28 pm
>> i get it. >> i will is that we are in housing crisis our goal to produce housing but i cannot speak forever for the planning commission. >> at the then for jimmy for a fire question two unit building and commissioners, that places you under president reports and announcements from an rh-2 to rh-3 do the fire setbacks on the existing structure do you have to meet that or becoming existing non-conforming like your window and door options percentages is change and also like if you have a fourth floor and adding a third floor do i have to have a means of negatives from the fourth floor because it is now rh-2. >> excellent question and everybody is asking that question typically it is a case by case and we will ask you had a preapplication meeting to nail it down because before you start spending all the money and
8:29 pm
drawing it up at least get something in writing from the planning department a preapplication meeting is in ord. >> the question is if converting a two unit into a 3 unit building is raises the risk category up and window opening allowances are reduced because it is a higher category building and setbacks of stairs and stuff like that do they have to be separate move if he's converting from a 2 to a 3 unit and the new exit requirements apply it is a case by case for each building and should be reviewed under a preapplication with the dbi and planning and fire and staff. >> can i add into my answer in
8:30 pm
section 311 we were reviewing we will be reviewing expansion under the residential design guidelines so that will still be a component for adding an adu all projects will be reviewed from the guidelines and policies and code so that should be noted for none adding an adu there is still the existing guidelines you'll have to conform to. >> last question for jimmy let's say we're undergo a legalization process we have plumbing inspections and other inspections he went through is it up to these guys in the fields to see what they want to see possibly hidden utility lines in the walls. >> yeah. they're called to see
8:31 pm
where they want to expose you know walls to show the plumbing it varies inspector to inspector so until their satisfied you can talk with them and don't like their answer you can talk with their supervisor to see if this is required all locations are 7 out of 10 or talk with their supervisors if you don't agree with the field supervisors call. >> doesn't make sense to strip the wall that is i do not like but not necessary they want to see like a couple of square feet feet or something. >> typically you don't have 5 bathrooms it is usually one or two not all walls. >> exactly so you know adu's are small in law are maul is bathroom wall a common wall between the bathroom and kitchen you know so within
8:32 pm
the scope it is not going to be that much of a problem. >> okay. thank you not a problem. >> we have a representative from the retirement board please introduce yourselves i'm san francisco rent board and as you mentioned if the adu does require waivers of certain permits than built into the agreement will be potentially an agreement to have the adu subject to the rent ordinance and also the planning department is part of a review process will be checking in on the record to the rent board keeps in terms of history of evictions any questions related to either of
8:33 pm
those aspects i'm i'll be happy to answer any questions you may have. >> and the last betty lee that works with dbi can you tell us what you spent the large project year doing and how you made the process efficient. >> we have a considerate at dbi on the first floor window number 8 walk in any time and we will answer our questions and that's where you'll start with screening forms to accept the screening form and tell you where to go for a permit and i also want to mention that something for the legal shin program that is important that if you're legalizing a units and the only purpose have a plan review fee waiver we're waving city planning and dbi fees so
8:34 pm
part of our fees will be reduced if you're legalizing our unit for which you'll pay for the administrative fees you know fire planned check fees and such. >> great very informative we have booths right down this wal >> (clapping.) >> good afternoon we're ready to start our 5 o'clock safety education two distinguished gentlemen with us first a fire inspector fernando and have from
8:35 pm
dbi jan inspector please start. >> okay. thank you gary my name is james the acting chief housing inspector at the dbi just to let you, you know you've been in the department for 20 years been a district inspector for 15 years in the bayview, chinatown, north beach, excelsior and visitacion valley, western edition and ingleside and sunset i created a community outreach program that helps to educate left hand and tenants to bring cooperation and communication into improving habit ability and improving fire safety i participated in the fire safety that task force with the board of supervisors and i'm sitting in for chief housing inspector
8:36 pm
rosemary bosque, chief housing inspector. >> i'm a fire spectator with the san francisco police department and have over 25 years and i'll talk about fire safeties smoke detectors and home escape planning and calling 9-1-1 there will be a lot of time at the end for answering questions and stick we'll stick around and we're going to keep on going right through this. >> right. right. >> so go. >> right. >> so the next slide is the fire safety workshop agenda we'll talk talk about what you should know about residential fires which are traumatic events which
8:37 pm
destroy life and livelihood i myself have survived a fire in my 20s. >> talk about that last night and discuss the general fires statistics the san francisco housing authority characteristic and vulnerability and preservation and awareness with the port in san francisco because of the older housing authority housing stock made out of wood is extreme vulnerable to fire having a consciousness of fire safety is really important we are going to talk about apartment building fire safety inspection and suspension and egress and maintenance what we in the city and talk about what you can do for fire preparedness for apartment and common areas of apartment adjacent properties which is a huge issue in my
8:38 pm
experience to try to improve everybody's fire safety consciousness and awareness that makes people safe next one so the roles of department we have a fire department that enforces the sf fire code fire department has a staff of 15 hundred strong brave firefighters that put their bodies on the line for fire interpretation in difficult circumstances and frier preservation and fire code conformity the department of building inspection has a housing code we're exorcising a minimum level of habit ability and 9 percent of all housing code revisions are related to
8:39 pm
fire. >> we brought a video it shows you how quickly a fire can spread when our watching this keep in mind that thirty to 40 years ago furnishing burned slower made of wood and cotton and wool and they didn't burn as fast with the materials they're made out of today, today we have mustache made out of fathom and synthetics they burn quicker you'll see you'll see a clock on the bottom of screen timing the fire time it for yourself the smoke detector takes two minutes to go off before and at that time two minutes in the
8:40 pm
room is almost flashing over within 2 1/2 minutes it is flash offer has occurred from the time the smoke detectors goes over off to a flashover you don't have much time to get out we'll talk about the home escape with planning and smoke alarms why they're so important let's watch
8:41 pm
this. >> okay. this is again as big you'll attempt to put out with a fire extinguisher. >> this is too big for a fisht you want to stay to a basket sized fire and call 9-1-1 first and keep our back to the exit the smoke alarm is outside of living room into the hallway
8:42 pm
so a lot of smoke if room the smoke alarm has not gone off yet okay. now it is going off the smoker alarm is going off in the hall up near the ceiling about 1000 degrees and that heat is radiating down pretty soon see that recliner the recliner will start smoking and will ignite by itself the fire is on the do the of the room but the chair will light up because of heat the smoker alarm went on two minutes now two minutes and the room has flashed over when the smoke alarm goes off you don't have much time
8:43 pm
okay back in 2013 there were 98 thousand structural fires and three hundred and 25 civilian deaths 3 nine hundred civilian injuries one $.6 billion in property damage in 2013 in 19 the statistics were worse one and 34 thousand structural fires with 1000 plus civilian deaths and civilian injuries and the same amount of property damage the deaths in injuries were a lot higher in 1980 that's because we're getting better at preventing fires there is some additional statistics here as you can see
8:44 pm
from 19 to 2013 there has been a 47 percent in reduction in civilian deaths and 38 percent reductions in civilian injuries smoking has been a major cause of fires for years 32 percent of leading fire related deaths were caused by smoking and that's statistic includes smoking materials so the match that was used to light occupy the cigarette and thrown in the waste can and electrical is a cause of fire 3 out of 5 deaths were in properties without working smoke detectors and one quarter of fatal alarms were
8:45 pm
present the devices didn't work why didn't the devices work the battery yeah, the battery we're out and not replaced or maybe it started chirping and because the battery was low and got taken out but not replaced with a new one or maybe a piece of toast burned in the kitchen and set off the alarm and to keep it from going off somebody removed the battery a working something about alarm reduces your chance of die in a fire by 50 percent tha here's the damage resulting from a fire
8:46 pm
if we can clean it up and make it safe safe to go in there there's the left you can see there's a closest no clothes left total devastation. >> so here in san francisco we have a lot of residential units three hundred and 80 thousand built before 1940 and the age of building is significant because there built under earlier codes so every year construction industry develops code upgrades and code are improved but because our most of our housing was built before the 40s
8:47 pm
code were improved but we're in the old code so we don't have the benefit of more than technology in a lot of the modern buildings 60 percent are 3 units and more and 20 thousands are apartment buildings the most previous haven't construction is non-wood frame construction and what you see in non-rated wood-framed construction built before 1940 are more avoids in the buildings more attic spaces more empty spaces the fire can occupy and spread faster this is why our housing stock is fragile and we have to doing everything we can to prevent fires from happening. >> non-rated wood frame
8:48 pm
construction is burns interest materials faster rapid fire extension and void spaces the building collapses quicker you allows the structural strength when it is built out of wood the wood adds fuel to the fire combusts and spreads so adjacent properties another big issue we have when the fires spread from one building to another building and the people are effected not only in the building it started by effected on to the right building to the right or left the buildings on the corners those are the most vulnerable you have going around the corner to another city block this is a big issue in san francisco. >> older buildings have hidden old electrical system in those
8:49 pm
buildings we'll get to that later go to the next slide. >> so there are a lot of vulnerable areas in the event of a fire a lot of high-risk activities like you saw with smoking and cook and candles he had a forensic once that had like a comboth girl stuff if the ceiling and wooden branches from tease trees and lit candles all the time and a fire in her room luckily got put out quickly that's asking for trouble unauthorized cooking u intelligence and storage areas without sprinkles in a lot of 5 unit buildings and is garbage
8:50 pm
huge without sprinklers is visual area at egress obstruction like i have to be planning our path out of the building if it is on fire when you see things blocking the way out maybe our neighbor put on the stairs like plants things like that to me that is telling me that the neighbor didn't care that much about what will happen they orange county to be thinking about their neighbors more. >> lightwells with garbage or debris small business owner someone smoking a cigarette there is it into a lightwell we have podiums programs through the code compliant outreach program which we have san francisco apartment association with the rights committee we have 5 groups the sro collaborative's trying to
8:51 pm
educate people don't throw anything into a lightwell meetings needs to be kept clean for drainage and light and air not for cigarettes roof areas so you can have a fire or firefighter on the roof hopefully not going to be dark and stuff up that and tripping all over the place and not able to put out the fire pr inoperative escapes i saw a bike located to a fire escape will not help when people are trying to get down the fire escapes and unauthorized wiring a lot of times the lights go out and things in the way of getting out of the building make sure that is clear okay. and imagine if you can't see very well and imagine trying
8:52 pm
to get down in the dark think about those things next slide, please roof all kinds of wires on the roof your first reading first responder that's did the the eis fire detection spoke alarms they're required in all units viral alarm systems and control panels we have a lot of older alarm systems building with 5 units or more and 3 or more stories with smoke detectors and local supervision on the alarm system there are not monitored by central their some apartment buildings that have it not required if i see a red light flashing you should tell the owner the building and tell the
8:53 pm
fire department or the fire building inspection will come out and take that care of that a sticker on the alarm system that tells us when it was certified that's another thing to look for if it is not serviced report that 90 percent of all violations of the housing code. >> something about alarms save lives and most people die from something about usually the fire didn't get to them it's the smoke that kills people again, you need working something about alarms in our sleeping area where you sleep did anyone know the differences between a something about alarm and smoke detector? any ideas the smoke lawmaker a
8:54 pm
stand alone that makes its own sound and it has its own power supply so you can it's portable put it up in a ram it is ready to do a smoke detector is dumb didn't have a sound by send a signal hard-wired and part of a fire alarm system it is hooked 0 up to the households electrical it is hooked up to the electrical system of the building and again sends a signal to the fire alarm and the fire alarm walks you up it's the difference between a fire alarm and a smoke detector 77 percent of all fire fatalities in 2005 were residents the fatality most of
8:55 pm
fatalities were not in cars they were not at work they were in people's homes so we know that having that smoke detector or smoke alarm their visual to waking you up to have enough time back to the video we saw earlier when the smoke alarm goes off you have enough time to get out not looking at for our purse or wallet or pictures of our family or important papers you have just enough time to save yourself to get out going back real quick you can see the wires on the smoke alarm that is hard-wired again hooked up to the household electricity
8:56 pm
okay carbon dioxide alarm they're required in you'll residents who live in california carbon dioxide is color also odorless and tasteless works like an anesthetic lowering our consciousness leaving you disoriented making that hard to think so imagine waking up a smoker alarm and the electrical didn't work because the fires shorted the electrical system in the building and you're having to find your way out with all the smoke and carbon dioxide in the air if you're sleeping the smoke puts you into a deeper sleep you'll not what time we call cooking the splinter killer last year, it killed 5 hundred and injured additional 20 thousand
8:57 pm
in the united states so carbon dioxide alarms with a hyde drove gas burning stove or a furniture as or you're required to have a carbon dioxide in your hohome
8:58 pm
carbon dioxide alarms they should have that u l approval symbol and they have a seal for the fire marshall state of california fire marshall approved and listed so they need boss of the listing you'll find them on the packaging the same for smoker alarms both approvals and in our days now they're a made what a 10 year battery a great thing because earlier we mentioned about how people contact take the batteries outer for false alarms there was that old slogan change our clock and change our batteries some people did and some people didn't
8:59 pm
now there are carbon dioxide and something about alarms available in combination and again, they have the temple year battery that lasts 10 years after 10 years dispose of alarm change out the whole thing the battery is seeltd you can't get it out if you tried but if you broke the alarm open not designed to have the battery removed change the whole thing after a certain amount of time like 10 years they become not as sensitive to smoke they should be competed in the sleeping areas if you have a forced furnace need to have a carbon dioxide alarm in that
9:00 pm
bedroom it you a combination carbon dioxide alarm and something about alarm and put that in the bedroom that takes care of of everything we recommend having a something about alarm in the hallway outside of bedrooms and its good to sleep with our bedroom door closed if there's a fire the smoke won't get into the bedroom and the alarm outside in the hallway will go off and wake you up if you sleep with our bedroom door closed have an alarm in our bedroom also, if there's a fire in the bedroom the smoke alarm in the bedroom will wake you up and recommended having something about alarms on every level of the home one in the bedroom and one outside in of the bedroom
