Smoke alarm safety compliance inspections

The use of electrical products and devices has grown exponentially in most homes these days. A fire could start anywhere in a home. The CFA recommends smoke alarms be installed in every living area and bedroom, read more here. Installed alarms must also meet AS 3786 as stated by Legislation Victoria here.

Smoke alarms save lives when installed correctly and operating properly, according to Fire Rescue Victoria. They recommend:

  • 9v batteries be replaced every year
  • Alarms be replaced every 10 years
