Change Your Clock, Change Your Batteries

By Firefighter / Webmaster John Merkel
March 11, 2017

With the beginning of daylight savings coming this weekend, we here at Dunn's Corners Fire Department couldn't think of a better time for you to change the batteries in every smoke detector in your house!

The fact is that smoke detectors save lives. If there is a fire in your home, smoke spreads quickly and you need working smoke detectors to give you and your loved ones valuable time to get out. Having a working smoke detector has been reported to reduce the chance of dying in a reported house fire in half. Almost two thirds of all home fire related deaths occurred in homes with no smoke detectors or not working smoke detectors.

So we encourage you to take a few minutes to change those batteries now, because it may give you those few seconds you need to survive.

HERES WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW:

-Install smoke detectors inside each bedroom, outside each sleeping area, and on each level of the home

-Test those detectors once a month, and replaced the batteries every six months!

-Once the smoke detectors sound, get out and stay out! No exceptions!!

-Replace all the smoke detectors in your house every ten years.
