Spring is on the way, which means that Daylight saving time is beginning. When it’s time to “spring forward” and change the clocks on Sunday, March 11, make sure to change the batteries in all of your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors. Even if batteries were recently changed, it’s still very important to conduct your monthly test of your alarms. It could save a life!
Reminder: Smoke & CO detectors do not last forever. The maximum life span is 8-10 years. After that time, the entire unit should be replaced. If the unit does not respond properly when tested, it should be replaced immediately.
