Township of Readington, New Jersey



Fire Prevention is an ongoing educational process of safety awareness. By educating homeowners and business personnel in fire prevention, we strive to minimize the loss of life and property. It is the Bureau's responsibility to enforce the New Jersey Uniform Fire Code which establishes minimum standards for the preventive maintenance of all required fire protection equipment installed. It establishes the safe conduct and operations of hazardous processes and specifies the proper storage of combustible and flammable materials. Fire Prevention plays a critical role in ensuring the safety of all New Jersey residents and visitors.

Residential Properties:
The New Jersey Uniform Fire Code 5:70-2.3(a) states: "Before any one or two family structure is sold, leased or otherwise made subject to a change of occupancy for residential purposes, the owner shall obtain a Certificate of Smoke Alarm, Carbon Monoxide Alarm and Portable Fire Extinguisher Compliance (CSACMAPFEC), evidencing compliance with N.J.A.C 5:70-4.19, from the appropriate enforcing agency."
