Did You Change Your Smoke Detector Batteries?
When you changed your clocks back an hour for Daylight Saving Time on Sunday, did you also change batteries in smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors? The Wheaton Fire Department recommends you change the batteries about every six months to ensure the detectors will work correctly. Using Daylight Saving Time as a reminder of when you last changed batteries is an easy way to remember when it’s time to replace them.
