Don’t forget to change Batteries this Fall Back!

October 31, 2019 Carlos Arreola

As the time change approaches on November 3rd, we’d like to remind our readers to make another change that could save their lives – changing the batteries in their smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors.

Non-working smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors rob residents of the protective benefits that these fire safety devices were designed to provide. The most commonly cited cause of non-working alarms is worn or missing batteries.

The peak time for home fire fatalities is between 10 p.m. and 6 a.m. when most families are sleeping. Smoke alarm and carbon monoxide detector maintenance is a simple, effective way to reduce home fire deaths. These alarms can give your family the extra seconds you need to get out of a home fire safely.
