    No smoke detectors or fire alarms in our apartment building. I swear this is not legal. My landlord refuses to cough up the dough to install working smoke detectors and fire alarms. How can this be ok with the city? It sure as heck does not seem safe.

      I don't think that that is legal, but I'm not sure. I would call the fire department and inform them of this and see what they have to say. If it is illegal, they will force him to put fire detectors until the building and will probably check up regularly to make sure that the complex obeys all fire codes. I think you are doing the right thing by reaching out considering how dangerous this could become, especially if there was a fire at night when people are sleeping and may not wake up if there are no alarms.
