Information regarding smoke detectors:
Please be advised that on June 28th, 2010, Pueblo City Council passed an ordinance amending the Municipal Code regarding requirements for the installation of smoke detectors for residential work that is limited to electrical installation, alterations, or repairs. 2009 (IRC Section R314.4)
What this amendment means is that for work that only involves electrical work, the use of battery-powered smoke detectors will be acceptable. The detectors must be installed in locations per the 2009 IRC.
