Every fall, like clock-work, the time change rushes upon us, bringing with it a reminder to change and test the batteries in your smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors. It’s almost daylight saving time. The National Fire Protection Association reports that 71% of smoke alarms which failed to operate had missing, disconnected or dead batteries. Please take the time to check your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors.
Daylight saving is nearly here. When you set your clock back on November 5th, remember to check the batteries in your smoke alarm and carbon monoxide detector. And be sure to remind your friends and family to check their alarms, as well!
