Fire Safety for Building Tenants

Current Fire Safety Requirements

In August 2016, the San Francisco Board of Supervisors passed  legislation (Ordinance 163-16) aimed at promoting fire and life safety, reducing the risk of fires, and preventing property damage from fires.  These laws establish new requirements for the owners of residential buildings.  Requirements vary based on the number of building residential units and fire alarm system requirements of existing buildings.  Non-compliance with these new fire safety requirements may lead to violations of the San Francisco Fire Code. 

The San Francisco Fire Department is here to help building residents/tenants understand the new requirements enacted by the San Francisco Supervisors.  Details of the requirements are provided below.
