Turn your Clocks Ahead and Check your Smoke and CO detectors

This weekend, Turn your Clocks ahead and Check your Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Alarms!

Replace alkaline batteries in alarms that use them, and check the manufacturing date printed on the back. Replace smoke alarms that are more than 10 years old and replace carbon monoxide alarms more than 5-7 years old. New smoke alarms should be photoelectric with sealed, long-life batteries and a hush feature.

This is also a good time to test your alarms & review your emergency escape plan with the family. Include the pets in your escape plan too.

Remember that early warning by smoke and carbon monoxide detectors combined with an escape plan can be a life saver!
