SMOKE DETECTORS SAVE LIVES

There can be few more frightening moments than being caught inside a burning house. It’s a situation no-one wants to have to face, but fire brigades fight thousands of fires in buildings every year.  Sadly not everyone gets out safely. All families should have a fire plan especially with young children in the house.

For new homes, the smoke alarms must be mains-powered (with battery back-ups in case of power failure), so they need to be installed by an electrician. Generally you should have more than one and they should be interconnected so that if one goes off, so do the rest, maximising the chances of alerting everyone in the house. The alarms must comply with the requirements of the Australian Standard AS 3786.

Smoke alarms are mandatory in all new homes, and also in all existing homes in Queensland.

There are two types of smoke alarms:smokie with fire

  • Photoelectric

  • Ionisation

 Photoelectric smoke alarms are the best for detecting smoldering fires

Install at least one of this type.
