Due to COVID-19, the Town Offices are currently closed to the public. We are still conducting residental smoke alarm inspections and currently doing so on Tuesday mornings in a 9:00am to 12:00pm window. We are asking that you download our application and mail it in with your $25.00 payment (checks made payable to the "Town of Tewksbury"). Once we receive application and payment, we will call you to confirm appointment. Please download application here.
All smoke alarms must be under 10 years old.
All alarms need to be properly located and tested prior to the inspection. You will fail the inspection and be charged a $25.00 re-inspection fee if any smoke or CO alarm does not work due to a mechanical defect, has missing or dead batteries, or if your house numbers are missing or not visible from the street side of the house.
House numbers must be permanently affixed to the house by either nails or screws and they must be clearly visible from the street. House numbers affixed to doors or a mailbox alone do not meet this requirement.
