By Deputy Chief Justin Gattorno
March 10, 2017

This Sunday March 12th at 2AM reflects the start of Daylight Savings time. This annual change in the clocks should also serve as a reminder to change the batteries in your smoke detectors (wireless and hard wired alarms) and in your carbon monoxide alarms. Smoke detectors and carbon monoxide alarms have been proven to save lives, so please take the time to make this effort.

A home fire impacts the life of an American family every 85 seconds. By providing an early warning and critical extra seconds to escape, smoke alarms cut in half your family's risk of dying in a home fire — but only if they work. So, when you turn your clocks ahead on March 12th, also make a lifesaving change in your household — change the batteries in your smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors. This simple habit takes just a moment, but is the best defense your family has against the devastating effects of a home fire. This reminder to Change Your Clock Change Your Battery® comes from Energizer® batteries, the West Grove Fire Company and the International Association of Fire Chiefs.
