Have your home meet the safest fire safety standards in Australia. Your family is worth it.
A fire escape route should also be discussed with all members of the household. A smoke alarm will alert you of a fire, but what you do next is a matter of life and death.
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.
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).
