Did you know that the risk of death in a house fire quadruples without a working smoke alarm? For best safety and protection, you want your Cairns and Port Douglas smoke alarms to be working and you want to have an up to date fire escape plan, which is regularly practised and well-rehearsed in the event of an emergency.
The 2017 Preventable Fire Statistics state that the top three causes of house fires are cooking, electrical and heating. Thankfully the number of cooking related fires are down by 12%. However preventable fires caused by heating have increased by 3% and electrical by 6% over the past twelve months.
The Queensland smoke alarm legislation specifies that all Queensland dwellings will be required to have interconnected photoelectric smoke alarms in all bedrooms, in hallways that connect bedrooms with the rest of the dwelling and on every level. Photoelectric smoke alarms see smoke and will alert you early, so you can escape. By having interconnected alarms, you will be alerted no matter where you are, or where the fire starts.
The legislation specifies the type, positioning and interconnecting of smoke alarms for Queensland homes. To comply with this legislation, all new dwellings and substantially renovated dwellings need to have interconnected photoelectric smoke alarms from 1 January 2017. For existing domestic dwellings leased and sold, they must be compliant by 1 January 2022 and in all other domestic dwellings by 1 January 2027.
For more information on the legislation, visit the Queensland Government’s QFES website. For more information on Cairns and Port Douglas smoke alarms installation and testing, contact BH Electrics on (07) 4099 3497 or firstname.lastname@example.org

We can’t speak highly enough of Brad and his team at BH Electrics. We have used BH Electrics for many years and since Brad and Leanne bought the business, they have lifted it to another level and are even better to deal with. They are so helpful and have great problem solving ideas as we need to get issues fixed very quickly being a holiday resort and dealing with guests. The admin team are absolute gems, managing to make everything possible and Brad’s staff are the nicest guys in town.
