You and your family are at risk in the event of a fire or other emergency if your security bars or grills do not open from the inside.
The number of window bars, grills and security doors in Daly City has been increasing everyday. The safety of these items concerns the City Council along with the Police and Fire Departments because they may prevent residents from escaping from their homes in an emergency.
Community Development Block Grant Funding Approved
Replacement of security grills on bedroom windows and exterior doors is expensive but must be done to insure the safety of both family and friends. To help with this requirement Daly City's City Council has approved the use of Community Development Block Grant funds, grants of up to $1,500 under the Residential Rehab Program, to assist income eligible homeowners with this vital task.
Additionally, smoke detectors must be installed in each sleeping room, hallway leading to bedrooms and each floor level.
Paper work is minimal; a written estimate showing the work to be done including the cost and a mini-application with copies of supporting documentation. No repayment required for all grants!
