Changes to smoke alarm legislation in QLD will have an effect all properties in QLD from rentals commencing in 2022 and owner occupier properties from 2027. These changes can be confusing and Smoke Alarm Boar can assist you with all your smoke alarm needs whether you are a Landlord, Facility Manager or a Residential Property Owner.
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/unit/apartment fire we recommend updating your smoke alarms to match the new legislation as soon as you can.
It's been proven that smoke alarms save lives. Reports have found that the number of deaths from house fires have dropped by more than half if well maintained smoke alarms are installed. You must ensure all your alarms are working and properly maintained.

"Fire Boar recently completed a very large fire sprinkler installation in our existing Brisbane facility. Our site is quite large with multiple buildings and is very busy with trucks, forklifts and personnel so the installation itself was extremely complex. We assumed that the project would be quite disruptive to our business because all offices and all forklift areas required sprinkler heads installed, however we were pleasantly surprised to see Fire Boar install the system with very little disruption, and in a timely and very safe manner. The Fire boar crew worked extremely well with our site crew, were always courteous and professional, and in all honesty, were a pleasure to deal with. We have chosen Fire Boar to service our facility going forward and they continue to display professionalism and attention to detail in the servicing function also. The management at Fire Boar clearly understand the customer's needs and they obviously instil that professionalism into their staff. The knowledge and skill level of the designers and installers guided us towards a cost-effective and 100% compliant system, and even the fire services inspector complimented us on such a beautiful installation! Needlessly to say we easily passed all inspections. Well done Fire Boar…I recommend you to prospective clients without hesitation and I can assure those clients that it will be the best decision they will ever make when it comes to fire services at their facility. Regards, Dr Anthony Rayner, Plant Engineer, Ecolab (Brisbane)."

In her words, she said the team are special guys and great to have around. She said I should be very proud of them, which means that Fire Boar should be very proud of the guys they have onsite! She has been very impressed with the care and consideration shown by the guys, lead by Alex.
Its great getting feedback like this and I love passing it on to your team.
