Change Your Clocks and Smoke Alarm Batteries this Weekend

Posted: 28 Mar 2018
Daylight Savings time ends Sunday 1 April 2018. Check smoke alarms when you change the clock!

Smoke alarms save lives and under NSW law a smoke alarm is required in every house, dwelling or caravan. Remember to remind your friends and family and help out those such as elderly friends and relatives, who might need assistance with changing the batteries.

Follow these tips to keep your family safe:

  • Test smoke alarms every month to ensure that the battery and the alarm are working.
  • Replace removable alkaline battery-type smoke alarms once a year. Smoke alarms that use a lithium battery do not need replacing annually. 
  • Replace all smoke alarms with a new unit every 10 years. Smoke alarms do not last forever – the sensitivity in all smoke alarms will reduce over time.
  • A short beep approximately every 60 seconds, is to alert you that the battery power is low and the battery needs replacing. See the manufacturer’s specifications for instructions.  If you have misplaced the instructions, these can often be found online.
