Fire safety is an integral part of the building and development process.
All residential dwellings, townhouses, units, apartments, flats, and places of shared accommodation must have smoke alarms installed in appropriate locations.
Smoke alarms are simple and effective devices that can help save lives by providing building occupants with an early warning of the presence of a fire, giving them time to escape from the building. Smoke alarms can also help reduce property damage through earlier fire brigade intervention.
