Change Your Batteries When You Change Your Clocks

Change Your Batteries When You Change Your Clocks”

State Fire Commissioner Tim Solobay has a reminder for all Pennsylvanians: When you turn back the clocks this weekend, don't forget to change the batteries in your smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors, too.

When changing your clocks back this Sunday, go ahead and change your batteries in your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors as well.

"Changing smoke alarms batteries at least once a year, testing those alarms, and reminding others to do the same, are some of the simplest, most effective ways to reduce these tragic deaths and injuries".

The smoke alarms are slated to be distributed to fire departments all across the region.

Tenants should contact their landlord immediately if their rental property does not have the required number of smoke alarms or if the alarms require maintenance.

Thanks to a generous donation by the New Canaan Fire Company, fire ighters will again be offering free batteries to New Canaan residents (three per household, please) at Fire Headquarters on Main Street from 9 a.m.to 4 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 5.

Smoke alarms and carbon monoxide alarms have a maximum life expectancy of 5 to 10 years and should be replaced as per the manufacturers' instructions.

And if you have batteries at home and that you need help changing, call the department at 203-341-5010 and the department will make a no-charge house call to help.
