Daylight Saving Time! Time To Change Those Batteries!

Time to fall back by setting those clocks back one hour early Sunday morning, November 3. It is also time to change the batteries in your smoke alarm. Checking your smoke alarms monthly and changing the batteries twice a year saves lives! Smoke alarms are inexpensive, usually less than $10 for a battery operated unit, but can warn people of smoke or fire and provide critical extra seconds for an escape. Fire is not what usually kills home occupants; rather it’s toxic and super-heated smoke, especially when people are asleep.
