Test smoke your alarms

Make sure everyone in the house knows what the alarms sound like and what to do when it does go off. The QFES recommend every home has a practiced escape plan.
If your smoke alarm does not work, replace the battery as soon as you can.
If after replacing the battery the smoke alarm is faulty, damaged or expired the device must be replaced with an interconnected, photoelectric system under new legislation.
We recommend that battery-powered smoke alarms are fitted with a new battery at least once a year.
A yearly service of individual hard-wired or interconnected smoke alarms by a licensed electrician is recommended to ensure the system is powered without faults.
If your smoke alarm emits a slow, periodic beep this indicates a low battery or a faulty alarm. Replace the battery as soon as you can. If the beep persists the alarm will need to be replaced.
Replacing smoke alarms
Under the new legislation, any damaged, faulty or expired smoke alarms must be replaced by interconnected, photoelectric smoke alarms and be installed by a licensed electrician.
