“CHANGE YOUR CLOCK - CHANGE YOUR SMOKE DETECTOR BATTERY”

posted Mar 7, 2012, 11:34 AM by Adam Ruder

SMOKE ALARM BATTERIES NEED TO BE CHANGED ONCE A YEAR!  WHEN YOU CHANGE YOUR CLOCK AHEAD TO DAYLIGHT SAVINGS TIME ON MARCH 11, 2012 REMEMBER TO CHANGE THE BATTERIES IN YOUR SMOKE ALARMS TOO. ONCE YOU HAVE CHANGED THE BATTERIES, BE SURE TO TEST THE ALARM TO MAKE SURE IT WORKS.

 

THIS SIMPLE ACT CUTS THE RISK OF DYING IN A HOME FIRE NEARLY IN HALF.  YOU CAN HELP TO PREVENT NEEDLESS FIRE DEATHS AND INJURIES BY CHANGING THE BATTERIES IN ALL OF YOUR SMOKE ALARMS BEFORE YOU GO TO BED ON SATURDAY NIGHT.  PROPERLY INSTALLED SMOKE DETECTORS WITH FRESH BATTERIES GIVE YOU PLENTY OF TIME TO ESCAPE WHEN FIRE STRIKES.  
 
DO NOT WAIT UNTIL IT IS TOO LATE, EVERY SECOND COUNTS WHEN THERE IS A FIRE!

 

REMEMBER TO CHANGE YOUR CARBON MONOXIDE DETECTOR BATTERIES TOO!
