Reminder: Change clock and check alarm batteries this weekend

Daylight Saving Time an Opportunity to Check on Smoke, Carbon Monoxide Detectors

Daylight saving time begins Sunday, March 11, and clocks are turned an hour forward. Volunteers will help families understand the importance of fire safety and help them develop personalized family escape plans to use in the event a fire breaks out in their home.

While changing the batteries, check for the age of each alarm; smoke and carbon monoxide alarms don't last forever.

You should check them every month to make sure the batteries are good and you should change the batteries every 6 months.
