Legislation requires all NSW residents must have at least one working smoke alarm installed on each level of their home. This includes owner occupied, rental properties, relocatable homes, caravans or any other residential building where people sleep.


This has been the law since May 1, 2006 and can include
hard-wired or battery powered smoke alarms.


It is now an offence not to have smoke alarms installed in every storey of all homes and other shared accomodation buildings where people sleep. A maximum penalty of $300 will apply. It is also an offence to interfere with or remove a smoke alarm unless for the purpose of maintenance or replacement.


The new laws aim to significantly reduce the number of home fire injuries and deaths.
