It is time to turn the clocks back this weekend as Daylight Savings Time comes to an end. This weekend is a great time to make sure your household is prepared for emergencies. Remember to replace your smoke alarm batteries when you change your clock on Sunday, November 5.
Change your clock and change your battery in your alarms is a nationwide theme from firefighters and for good reason! 66% of fire fatalities occur in homes found with no smoke alarms or non-working smoke alarms due to a lack of batteries or dead batteries. Colder weather means there will be more fires so it is important to ensure you have working alarms. Working smoke alarms increase the chances of surviving a fire in your home and work to keep your family safe!
