ReAlarm - Smoke Alarm Campaign

Posted on May 03, 2016

Re-alarm your home against fire.

Ten years ago the NSW Government introduced new smoke alarm legislation to give the community greater warning of house fires. The legislation, introduced on 1 May 2006, specified that all residential buildings must have at least one working smoke alarm per floor.

With 2016 marking the 10th anniversary of the NSW smoke alarm legislation, this year NSW residents are being asked not to change their smoke alarm batteries but to replace their entire alarm.

As smoke alarms can be affected by dust, insects, humidity and age, manufacturers advise replacing them every 10 years to ensure they remain in working order. That means millions of smoke alarms across the State are now reaching their ‘best before date’.
