CA - California has recently adopted legislation requiring
certification of fire alarm installers, under the title of Fire/Life
Safety Technicians. This certification, along with the General
Electrician and Residential Electrician certifications, will become
mandatory on July 1st, 2005. The final legislation (technically a
legislative update) is still being bandied about (this is California,
after all). The assembly bill is AB1087. According to what is
currently known, the requirements break down as follows: Pipe, boxes
and wire for fire alarm may be installed by a certified general
electrician. Device installation, control panel installation/wiring,
programming, testing, servicing etc. are to be performed by a
certified fire/life safety technician. Please note that this
