Dear Landlord

Ionisation Smoke Alarms - Life-Safety & Litigation Concerns

 

This letter has been generated with assistance from the World Fire Safety Foundation at my request.

 

I, Mr John Doe am writing to you care of my property manager regarding concerns with the proper protection of your property and the safety of my family.

 

Since the Northern Territory's photoelectric-specific smoke alarm legislation came into force on 1 November 2011, landlords have been required to install photoelectric smoke alarms such as when rental properties are sold or released:

"Ionisation Smoke Alarms Should Be Banned"

At least one of the smoke alarms in my home is an ionisation type. The Australasian Fire & Emergency Services Authorities Council (AFAC) is the peak representative body for all Australian and New Zealand Fire Brigades. The former President of AFAC, Commissioner Greg Mullins, and other experts have warned that ionisation smoke alarms should be banned.

 

60 Minutes - 'The Alarming Truth'

Please watch the 60 Minutes ionisation smoke alarm exposé, 'The Alarming Truth'. This was filmed in the NT and shows just how dangerous ionisation alarms actually are:

In accordance with Northern Territories photoelectric-specific smoke alarm legislation I respectfully ask that you please install photoelectric alarms in your property as soon as you are able to, so your home and my family are properly protected.

 

The price of photoelectric alarms has dropped considerably:

Please let me know what you plan to do.

 

Thank you.

 

Respectfully,

Dear John Smith

 

Ionisation Smoke Alarms - Life-Safety Concerns

 

This letter has been generated with assistance from the World Fire Safety Foundation at my request.

 

I am writing to you regarding concerns with the proper protection of your property and the safety of my family.

 

Information from the Queensland Fire & Emergency Service (QFES) has highlighted a serious life-safety issue with the ionisation type of smoke alarm in my home. Queensland’s Residential Tenant’s Authority (RTA) says tenants must advise their property owner if there is any issue with their smoke alarms:
www.TenantsLivesMatter.org/rta

 

At least one of the smoke alarms in my home is an ionisation type. The Australasian Fire & Emergency Services Authorities Council (AFAC) is the peak representative body for all Australian and New Zealand Fire Brigades. The former President of AFAC, Commissioner Greg Mullins, and other experts have warned that ionisation smoke alarms should be banned. Please watch these two TV News reports warning about ionisation alarms (less than 4 minutes): www.TenantsLivesMatter.org/home.html#tat

 

I am aware that Queensland’s photoelectric-only smoke alarm legislation that was introduced on 1 January 2017 does not legally require rental property compliance until 1 Jan 2022. However, the Queensland Fire & Emergency Service (QFES) is recommending installing photoelectric smoke  alarms as soon as possible and the price of them has dropped considerably:  www.TenantsLivesMatter.org/cost

 

Therefore, I respectfully ask that you please install photoelectric alarms in your property as soon as you are able to, so your home and my family are properly protected.

 

Please let me know what you plan to do.

 

Thank you.

 

Respectfully,

 

Mr John Doe
