Smoke Alarm - Spring Check

This year Daylight Savings Time came a little earlier than it usually does. Hopefully that didn’t throw you off and you still replaced your smoke detector’s battery. This should be done at least twice a year to ensure that this life-saving device is ready when you need it. Even newer units that are hardwired into the homes electric have a battery to use as backup. Ensure you change those regularly. Also
  • Test your smoke alarms monthly.

  • To help prevent nuisance alarms, gently vacuum your smoke alarm every six months or as needed.

  • Never borrow smoke alarm batteries to use for toys or other equipment.

  • Replace all smoke alarms every 10 years or as recommended by the manufacturer
