Daylight savings time is on March 8th. When you change your clock, take time to change your Smoke Detector and Carbon Monoxide batteries.
Chances are about 95 percent of you have a Smoke Alarm in your home, 20% do not work due to worn or missing batteries- this means nearly 19 million homes are at needless risk nationwide! A working Smoke Alarm and Carbon Monoxide (CO) Alarm can provide the critical extra seconds people need to escape a tragedy. Over 6,000 deaths occur in house fires each year.
