Change Your Clock – Change Your Battery

Saturday, November 3rd, 2007 is coming this weekend.

This is the date we change our clocks back to Standard Time. Spring forward – Fall back. Check out this link: Time Zones & Daylight Savings.

This is also the best time to replace the batteries in your smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors.

If your smoke alarm is over 10 years old, it is recommended that it be replaced. They have a life span of about 10 years.

Carbon monoxide detectors are a different matter. They have a life span of about 5 years before they should be replaced.

This is also a good time to get into the habit of testing your smoke alarm on a regular basis.

A candle will smolder after it is blown out. This smoke should activate the smoke alarm if placed directly below it.

REMEMBER: Only WORKING smoke alarms save lives!

Test YOUR smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors today.
