It’s that time of year again. Now that many of us have clocks that automatically change with Daylight Savings Time it is extremely important to not forget about changing your detector batteries. Even if your detectors are hard wired, there is still a battery inside as a backup just in case we lose power, like during Sandy. You must change your batteries at least annually, and if your detectors are not hard wired, at least semi-annually. Please don’t wait until the detector starts to beep at 3am, change the batteries now.
Also don’t forget to check your dates, smoke detectors are good for 10 years and Carbon Monoxide detectors are good for 5 years. There should be a date sticker on the back, don’t go by when you purchased it or bought your home. If you need assistance in changing your batteries please call the firehouse, NOT 911. We will be happy to assist you in checking your alarms, replacing your batteries, or answering any questions you may have.
Note: We are 100% volunteer so please leave a message and someone will get back you. If you have an emergency call 911.
