From 1st Nov 2021, all STRA dwellings are required to comply with Fire Safety Standards.

Short-Term Rental Accommodation (STRA)

The New South Wales State Government has implemented new statewide regulations for Airbnb and other short-term rental accommodation (STRA). These mandatory fire safety standards will apply to any host who wants to rent a private dwelling to the public from November 1, 2021.

These regulatory frameworks seek to ensure local communities continue to enjoy the economic benefits of Short Term Rental Accommodation (STRA) while managing risk to the guest by the adverse impact to people unfamiliar with the property.

With experienced teams of qualified and trusted technicians working throughout New South Wales (NSW), Survival Solutions is pleased to provide these vital and mandatory fire safety services to STRA managers or individual property hosts.

Survival Solutions provide tailored solutions to meet the individual needs of property owners, which may be the supply only or installation of evacuation diagrams, wireless smoke alarms, fire extinguishers and blankets. Packages include:

 Inspect and test existing equipment for compliance, such as smoke alarms and egress doors.
 Design and install up to four (4) A4 evacuation diagrams (plans), including NSW emergency App QR code.
 Install smoke and heat alarms where required (wireless interconnected with non-removable 10-year lithium batteries).
 Supply and install 2.5kg DCP (ABE) multi-purpose fire extinguishers and 1.2x1.8m fire blanket.
 Generic or site-specific emergency information.
 Certificate of compliance.
 Ongoing annual inspections are available on request.

With the host or managers assistance, we can provide evacuation diagrams and other fire safety equipment. Should you require this assistance, please get in touch with our team for help.

smoke alarm installer

A detached Class 1a residential dwelling does not require a fire extinguisher or blanket under regulations; however, some hosts may choose to have them installed. If this is the case, please select item 2 when placing an order. In the situation where we determine the existing smoke alarms are non-compliant with the regulation, out of date or not working, you agree to the installation of required wireless smoke alarms as per item 1.

Evacuation diagrams (plans), including “You are here” and the NSW Gov Emergency App QR Code, will be installed and secured near the entry door and in each bedroom, with the correct rotation for that wall.

Note: prices subject to change without notice.


NSW State Emergency Services  the NSW Rural Fire Service  and your relevant local council provide useful information that can assist hosts with the preparation of general emergency information advice, to ensure guest and visitor safety is maximised.
