Change Your Clock – Change Your Battery- March 11th 2012

In anticipation of daylight savings time beginning in the wee hours of the morning on March 11th,  remember to “Change Your Clock – Change Your Battery” in both smoke alarms and carbon monoxide (CO) detectors in your homes. Working smoke alarms and CO detectors double a family’s chance of surviving a home fire and/or unsafe carbon monoxide levels in the home.


While you are making the changes and adding new batteries to your smoke alarm and carbon monoxide detector this weekend, use the “extra” hour you save to:


·         Dust or vacuum smoke alarms when you change the batteries.

·         Push the test button and test alarms once a month using the test button.

·         Replace the entire alarm if it's more than 10 years old or doesn't work properly when tested.

·         Install smoke alarms on every level of your home, including the basement, and both inside and outside of sleeping areas.

·         Interconnect all smoke alarms throughout your home so that when one sounds, they all sound. Interconnected alarms are available at most stores that sell smoke alarms.

·         Make sure everyone in your home understands the warning of the smoke alarm and knows how to respond.

·         Prepare and practice two escape plans so that you and your loved ones can get out of your home safely in the event of a fire.

·         Plan to meet in a place a safe distance from the fire and where first responders can easily see you.

Being prepared can be the life or death difference.

Ellie:  I can change my clock very easily... but I sure wish I knew how to change my "battery."  It's not as easy as I would like... if you know what I mean...

Hope all is well...
