Say goodbye to darkness and hello to longer days as Daylight Saving Time begins this weekend.
At 2 a.m. on Sunday, March 11, 2012, we will “Spring Forward” and set our clocks ahead one hour.
Officials say since we’re setting our clocks ahead one hour, now is
the perfect time to check and replace batteries in smoke alarms and
carbon monoxide detectors.
Fire Department officials offer the following tips for making sure
the smoke alarms in your home are maintained and working properly:
Install smoke alarms in every bedroom, outside each sleeping area, and on every level of the home.
Test smoke alarms at least once a month using the test button, and make sure everyone in your home knows their sound.
If an alarm “chirps,” warning the battery is low, replace the battery right away.
The manufacturers recommend that smoke detectors and carbon monoxide alarms are replaced every 10 years.
