New fire safety laws in New South Wales.
A series of fatal house fires has prompted the New South Wales Government to make smoke detectors compulsory in all homes. Under new laws that came into force on June 1st 2006, all homes, boarding houses, motels, hotels and hostels in NSW have to be fitted with smoke alarms. New legislation will be introduced requiring all homes and units throughout Queensland to be fitted with smoke alarms by 1 July 2007. Victoria & South Australia have already had similar legislation in place since 2000. In Western Australia, fire and housing authorities are also working on a proposal to make smoke alarms mandatory in all properties in the near future.
