McKinney Fire Department visits neighborhood to ensure working smoke alarms

Check Smoke Detectors When You Adjust Clocks This Weekend Newtown Square Fire Co

The Duluth Fire Department is reminding the public to check the batteries on their smoke alarms.

Daylight Savings begins Sunday at 2:00 a.m.

"A very small percentage of people know how old their smoke alarms are or how often they need to be replaced", said Scott Smith, Fire Prevention Officer.

"Take a few minutes to replace your smoke alarm batteries and push the test button to make sure the alarms are working", added Ziel.

The Red Cross and fire department have also worked closely together on safety initiatives, including the home fire campaign, a multi-year effort to reduce the number of home fire deaths and injuries by 25 percent.

- Interconnect all smoke alarms throughout your home so that when one sounds, they all sound.

Smoke and CO alarms should be installed and maintained per the manufacturer's instructions.

After 10 years your smoke alarm has worked over 87,000 hours! Experts also say you should periodically clean smoke alarms using a vacuum attachment. "We see too many disabled smoke alarms in fires when people really needed them to work". "So smoke alarms are cheap assurance and the only early warning device you'll have". Because of this technology, the national slogan "Change your clock, Change your battery" may not apply to OR residents who have these ionization-only smoke alarms.

DeLorie said "No one expects to be a victim of a fire, but the best way to survive one that does occur is to have working smoke alarms".

"Smoke alarms are lifesavers, but only if they are working".

And if you don't have smoke alarms, no problem. If your family doesn't have a plan, this is a good time to develop one. Install alarms on every level of the home.
