Change your clocks, check your detectors

Today’s post is short and sweet, but the message is imperative.  When you change your clocks this weekend, take a few extra minutes to check the operation of your smoke detectors.  A few extra minutes could save your life.  It has been my experience that smoke detectors do save lives, but only when they work.

  • Battery operated detectors should be checked at least twice per year.
  • Keep some extra 9 volt batteries on hand
  • Smoke detectors are designed to last for 10 years.  Time flies by so maybe your detector needs to be replaced.
