Daylight Saving Time A Good Time To Check Smoke Detectors

 

It’s time to “spring forward” and set your clocks ahead one hour as Daylight Saving Time begins Sunday. It’s also a good time to change the batteries in smoke detectors and make sure carbon monoxide detectors are working.

Brussels-Union-Gardner Fire Chief Curt Vandertie says they should be tested at least once per year.

According to the U.S. Consumer Products Safety Commission, about 16 million homes in the country have a smoke alarm that does not work. Not only is it important to keep the batteries fresh, Vandertie says smoke detectors and carbon monoxide detectors last five to seven years and need to be replaced after that.

Before you head to bed tonight, set your clock ahead one hour and remember to check the smoke and carbon monoxide detectors in your home.
