Change Clocks, Smoke Alarm Battery For Day Light Savings

A properly installed and maintained smoke alarm is the only thing in your home that can alert you and your family to a fire 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

With time springing forward this weekend as we enter day-lite savings time, Craig Kidder for Casper Fire/EMS says, as you change your clocks, change your smoke alarm battery. It’s easy to do and it saves lives.

“The earlier detection alert that you get, if there is a fire in your home, the better chance you have of getting everyone out safe and without inhaling a lot of smoke and that kind of thing.”

Kidder says smoke detectors are inexpensive and likely are powered by a 9 volt battery. He says batteries should be changed once a year and the smoke alarm unit replaced every 8 to 10 years.
