Change batteries when you 'spring ahead' this weekend

Daylight Saving Time an Opportunity to Check on Smoke, Carbon Monoxide Detectors Change batteries when you 'spring ahead' this weekend
Ben Pena | 10 March, 2018, 01:25

Daylight Saving Time starts at 2 a.m. local time Sunday morning. "We urge everyone to not only change their batteries when they change their clocks but also set a reminder to test their alarms once every month".

Functional smoke alarms cut the risk of dying in a home fire in half, Trego says.

"Residents can check their smoke alarms by pushing the test button on the alarm".

When a smoke alarm sounds, get outside and stay outside. They add that that smoke detectors should be in hallways that lead to sleeping areas, basements and on every level of homes. They can also help by donating to Red Cross Disaster Relief by visiting redcross.org, calling 1-800-RED CROSS or texting the word REDCROSS to 90999 to make a $10 donation. A working smoke alarm significantly increases your chances of surviving a deadly home fire. If you can not reach the button easily, use a broom handle.

"If alarms have removable batteries, those batteries should be replaced", a press release from FASNY said Friday.

Always follow the manufacturer's instructions for testing smoke alarms and replacing the batteries. "If it doesn't have a date on it, it's over 10-years-old".

Devise a fire escape plan with two ways out of every room and a designated outside meeting place.

Landlords are required by law to install, maintain and test alarms at least annually and whenever there is a change in tenancy.
