Smoke Alarms

From 1 October 2009 mains powered smoke alarms must be fitted in all existing residential buildings prior to sale and when a new tenancy agreement is signed for rental properties.

If there are no tenancy changes in rental properties, then mains powered smoke alarms must be fitted by 1 October 2011.

Should it not be possible to install a hard wired smoke alarm for reasons of a structural nature then an owner can apply to the Shire for approval to install a battery powered smoke alarm. An application form is available in the Application Forms section of this web site  - Smoke Alarm Application Form

Changes to Smoke Alarm laws 1 May , 2014.
