The Smoke Alarm Scheme is a Government funded subsidy providing specialised smoke alarms to Deaf and hard of hearing community members living in Queensland.

The Smoke Alarm alerts the resident to a fire hazard through sight (flashing light) and feel (vibrating pad), giving them the time to evacuate the home safely.

To be eligible for the subsidy you must be:

  • Deaf or hard of hearing
  • Living in Queensland

The Smoke Alarm normally sells for $400, however with the Queensland Government subsidy it is available to eligible community members for just $50, or $20 with a Concession Card.

To apply for the subsidy please complete the application form and return it to a Deaf Services Queensland office, or email it to
