Time Change Safety Tips

Time Changes Mean Battery Changes

Get in the habit of changing the batteries in your smoke detectors and carbon monoxide detectors every fall and spring when changing the clocks for Daylight Savings Time.

It is also a good idea to make it standard procedure in your household to verify that all fire extinguishers are fully charged and in working order when you adjust the clocks each season.

Get Smoke Detectors - Have Smoke Detectors - Lots of Smoke Detectors. They are inexpensive and reliable. Install them in your bedrooms and hallways and living rooms. Not in the kitchen or near the bathroom (steam sets them off). Put new batteries in them and test them. They will wake you up in time to escape a fire while it is small.
