May is Building Safety Month!
Your City of Roseville's Building Division joins California Building Officials and other local jurisdictions in celebrating Building Safety Month each year. Our aim is to keep you and your family safe! There are many ways you can ensure your family is living in a safe environment. We all know about checking the battery in our smoke detectors, but did you know that since July 1, 2011, California State law requires smoke and carbon monoxide alarms to be installed in all single family dwellings? City Building Inspectors are currently verifying the installation of alarms with all issued residential permits. Want to know when a building permit is required for your upgrade, renovation, or "do it yourself" project? Please be sure to scan this page, and the links to the left, or stop by the City's Permit Center at 311 Vernon Street. Throughout the month of May, safety related coloring activities, stickers, and Junior Building Inspector badges will be on hand for kids visiting the Permit Center. There will also be weekly Fire Escape activity contests, awarding one lucky child a plush "Codie the Couger", Code Official. Click on the Week buttons below for important safety tips pertaining to that week's topic. Call 916-774-5332 for more information.
Special Notes. Effective July 01, 2011, all single family dwelling units require smoke & carbon monoxide detectors throughout the residence, to be inspected and verified at final inspection.
