Change your clocks, change your batteries.

Remember that this Saturday night, November 6, it’s time to turn back your clocks.

We also recommend changing the batteries in your Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Alarms. By ensuring that the batteries in these life-saving tools are fresh, you can double your chances of surviving a home fire.

Smoke Alarms should be replaced after 10 years and when replacing them, purchase the type with sealed 10 year batteries.

In addition to checking our Smoke Alarms, now is a good time to review and practice your family’s home escape plan. Understanding ways out of the home, an outside meeting place and how to notify emergency agencies are critical pieces of information for the whole family.
