The Fallston Volunteer Fire and Ambulance Co. reminds you to “Change Your Clock, Change Your Battery” Sunday March 11, 2018. This life-saving program encourages people to change their smoke alarm batteries when they change their clocks. The time change occurs this year at 2 a.m. Sunday, March 11.
As you set your clocks forward tonight for daylight savings time, it is a perfect opportunity to also check your smoke alarms and change their batteries. If you have installed the new 10 year battery alarms, you should still TEST them for proper function, and ensure the whole family KNOWS WHAT TO DO by practicing a family home fire escape plan together!!!
If your current smoke alarm is over 10 years old, it’s time to replace it with a new 10-year lithium battery-powered smoke alarm.
