New legislation specifies the type, positioning, and interconnectedness of alarms, which are critical factors for an early warning and quick escape.
To give your family the best chance of surviving a house fire, QFES recommends updating your smoke alarms to match the new legislation as soon as you can. In the meantime, make sure all your alarms are working and properly maintained.
