Citation: 6 N.J.A.R. 81
Decision Date: 1982
Agency: DEPARTMENT OF COMMUNITY AFFAIRS
Synopsis: The Department of Community Affairs sought to order the respon- dent to provide automatic smoke detection systems on common areas of its motel; while not denying the absence of smoke detectors, the respondent argued that the heat detectors it had in place were superior to the required smoke detector stsyem. The administrative law judge assigned to the case found that the Legislature had clearly provided that smoke alarms or detectors and not any other type of fire detection unit were required in hotels and multiple dwellings. The judge found no indication of any Legislative intent to provide for an exception from that requirement. Accordingly, the respondent was ordered to comply with the De- partment's order.
