“Smoke alarms
save lives”

Photoelectric Smoke Alarms

Let Southern Cross Electrics & Air Conditioning keep your smoke alarms up to date.

New Smoke detector legislation passed 1st September, 2016:

…The legislation specifies that every Queensland residence will need to be fitted with photoelectric, interconnected smoke alarms in all bedrooms, as well as hallways of residences……All houses being built or significantly renovated will need to comply with the smoke alarm legislation upon completion after January 1, 2017. All houses leased or sold will need to meet compliance after five years and all owner-occupied private dwellings will need to comply with the legislation within 10 years……Any smoke alarm being replaced after January 1, 2017 must be a photoelectric alarm……β€œThis technology is proven to save lives and the sooner it is in every Queensland home, the safer we’ll be”……QFES has long recommended photoelectric, interconnected smoke alarms to be hard-wired into homes and the decision to mandate this is to be applauded…

Hon. Bill Byrne, QLD Minister for Police, Fire and Emergency Services and Minister for Corrective Services.
