A good quality non-removable 10-year battery powered smoke alarm, or a hardwired alarm, is more reliable and effective. You must test and clean each smoke alarm within 30 days before the start of a tenancy agreement. In addition you must replace, in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions, each battery in the smoke alarm that is flat or that you or your agent is aware is almost flat within 30 days before the start of a tenancy.

Smoke alarms must be replaced 10 years after the maufacturers’s date.

When notified by a tenant that a s smoke alarm is not operating, you are required to replace that smoke alrm with a photoelectric type that complies with AS3786-2014.

IS YOUR HOME READY FOR THE SAFE EVACUATION OF LOVED ONES?

AS A TENANT FIRE SAFETY SHOULD BE EXPECTED

Smoke alarms are required to be installed in each bedroom and every connecting hallway of each level of your rental property by no later than 1/1/2022.

As a tenant in Queensland, you have responsibilities with regards to the maintenance of the smoke alarms in your property.

You Must:

  • You must test and clean smoke alarms at least once every 12 months;
  • Replace any flat or nearly flat batteries;
  • Advise the property manager/owner if there is any issue with the alarm (apart from batteries);
  • Allow the property manager/owner right of entry to install smoke alarms

A tenant must not remove a smoke alarm, remove the battery (other than to replace it), or do anything to reduce the effectiveness of the alarm (e.g. paint over it).

The new legislation specifies that all Queensland dwellings will be required to have interconnected photoelectric smoke alarms in all bedrooms, in hallways that connect bedrooms with the rest of the dwelling and on every level.

Our mission is to protect the lives of Queensland residents, by upgrading existing smoke alarm systems to unified systems that rapidly alert occupants to the early stage of a potential fire in their home and to protect them from electrocution by testing and installing electrical safety switches.

SMOKE ALARMS TO PROTECT QUEENSLAND

Queensland Smoke Alarms was born after legislation was passed to ensure that people had adequate and effective Smoke Alarm Systems installed in their homes to prevent tragedies such as the one in Slacks Creek, Queensland in 2011 where 11 people lost their lives and the Golinski house fire on the Sunshine Coast where 4 people lost their lives on Boxing Day 2011.

Smoke Alarm Legislation Changes

All Queensland dwellings will be required to become compliant with the Amendment Act 2016 (Qld) Fire and Emergency Services (Domestic Smoke Alarms) which commenced on 1 January, 2017. This Amendment imposes additional obligations on property owners/managers with regards to the installation and maintenance of smoke alarms at domestic dwellings and requires all smoke alarms to be of the Photoelectric type, be less than 10 years old, be interconnected with every smoke alarm in the dwelling so that they all activate together and be either hardwired or powered by a non-removable 10-year battery. Smoke Alarms must now be installed in each bedroom and in hallways which connect bedrooms and the rest of the dwelling; or if there is no hallway, between the bedrooms and other parts of the storey; and if there are no bedrooms on a storey, at least one smoke alarm must be installed in the most likely path of travel to exit the dwelling.

We help you comply with safety legislation

Queensland Smoke Alarms specialise in maintaining, replacing and installing smoke alarms and safety switches in accordance with this legislation and we strive to make the transition to comply, easy and cost effective by forming alliances direct with the recommended smoke alarm manufacturers and by applying our industry and service delivery experience. RCDs have only been mandatory in any new or extended domestic power circuits since the early 1990s, and in any new or extended domestic lighting circuits from 2000. They are not mandatory for all circuits yet, but coming in the new AS/NZS 3000:2017. Safety switches monitor the flow of electricity through a circuit and turn off the power in a fraction of a second if a leakage of current is detected and they provide personal protection against electric shock. In addition, owner-occupiers of older, unrenovated homes are not legally required to retrofit their circuits with RCDs, but investors and sellers face stricter requirements in certain states:
