As the occupant, it is your responsibility to maintain smoke alarms. Regularly test, change batteries (if required), and keep them clean and dust free to ensure they are in good working order.
You should not deactivate a smoke alarm or interfere with its operation in any way. If it is identified that you have damaged or removed the smoke alarm, DHA will immediately arrange for the unit to be repaired or replaced and you will be tenant charged for the repair or replacement.
If you identify a fault, or the smoke alarm is not in working order, immediately notify DHA 139 342.
