Working Smoke Detectors Save Lives (Change Those Batteries)
Daylight Savings Time ends this weekend at 2 am Sunday morning, and the event is the semi-annual reminder to change the batteries in our smoke detectors. Here's some advice from Minnesota's Chief Deputy Fire Marshal Jim Smith.
From the Minnesota Department of Public Safety:
People die every year in Minnesota homes without working smoke alarms. Those deaths are preventable. Change your smoke alarm batteries this weekend when you fall back. While you're at it, test those alarms to make sure they're working. More information about smoke alarms is available in this fact sheet.
