Check your Smoke Alarms, when you change the Clocks!

November 6th is daylight savings remember to change the batteries in your smoke alarms & CO monitors.
Most fatal fires occur at night. Every home needs working smoke alarms to provide an early warning. Install smoke alarms in all sleeping rooms, hallways that lead to sleeping areas, basements and each additional level of your home.
Smoke alarms should be mounted on the ceiling 4” from the wall; wall mounts should be 4-12” from the ceiling. Do not install near draft areas (windows,
vents.). Call your local fire department if you are unsure about placement.
A good time to remember to check your smoke alarm and change the batteries is when you change your clocks twice a year as daylight savings time begins and ends.
Prepare and practice an escape plan! Crawl low under smoke. Plan where to meet outside.
