As of April 30th, 2011 all Mobile Homes, Manufactured Homes, & Multi-Family Manufactured shall be required to have an Automatic Residential Fire Sprinkler System installed as required by Ordinance 787. The requirement for the installations will be based on the manufacturers’ date of completion of the specific unit. Any Home manufactured before this effect date will not be required to comply with these requirements.
On 4/12/11 the Butte County Board of Supervisors voted unanimously to maintain the exemption for mobile and manufactured homes from thc County’s fire sprinkler requirement. This exemption applies to the unincorporated areas of Butte County.
San Bernardino County Fire Department (SBCFD) provides clarification regarding the ordinance requiring fire sprinklers in manufactured homes and multi-family manufactured homes installed in the unincorporated areas over which the County has jurisdiction.
Manufactured homes generally cost less than other types of homes. The method of construction is the reason for the lower cost. Manufacturers construct homes on an assembly line under a federal building code, known as the “Housing and Urban Development –Code,” or “HUD-Code.” The HUD-code provides uniformity that allows builders to use assembly line construction, which then lowers the cost of building a home.
