There are new regulation changes surrounding the use of smoke alarms in Caravans in Queensland. Read more about these changes below.

From 1 July 2024, all newly registered or transferred caravans and motorhomes in Queensland must have a photoelectric smoke alarm installed on the ceiling. By 1 July 2027, this requirement will extend to all other registered caravans and motorhomes.

According to the law, newly registered or transferred caravans and motorhomes must have a smoke alarm on the ceiling, powered by a 10-year non-removable battery. QFES advises placing at least one working photoelectric smoke alarm inside the van near the bed, and one in the annexes if used for sleeping.

Queensland Fire and Emergency Services (QFES) also strongly recommends that unregistered caravans, motorhomes, and mobile homes have a working smoke alarm to ensure early fire detection and safety.
