Fire Alarm Systems: Your Legal Obligations

The Queensland Government has recently passed legislation requiring all new dwellings and renovated properties built from January 1, 2017 to have smoke alarms fitted in every room and hallway. Furthermore, properties being leased or sold will also need to meet these requirements from January 1, 2022 onwards. More information is available on the Queensland Fire and Emergency Services website.

Fire Alarm System Installation:

Fatal house fires absolutely devastate small local communities such as ours, and we consider ourselves responsible for ensuring the safety of local Hervey Bay and Maryborough residents. We don’t gamble with lives by installing cheap fire alarm systems, and we specifically source high quality alarms for our customers for added peace of mind. Our technicians carry high quality components with them, allowing for quick installations without the need to come back at a later time.

Fire Alarm Testing and Maintenance:

Fire alarms should be frequently tested, and batteries should be maintained to ensure they can operate at their fullest capabilities in the event of an emergency. Fire alarms can be tested on some alarms by holding in the button for a few seconds until a beep sounds. If no beep sounds, it’s time to get a new battery, or perhaps even replacement of the unit.

For those with tall ceilings or alarms that cannot be button-tested, we offer a testing and maintenance service. We’ll also check surrounding electrical components, such as safety switches and switchboards to assess whether your house is as protected as much as possible from an electrical hazard. We recommend that landlords get their fire alarms inspected on final inspections, or before a new tenant moves in.
