Fall Back.....Spring Ahead.....

...Swap the Batteries!

Make sure you change the batteries in your smoke detectors every time you change your clocks.  Fall back an hour, put in new batteries, spring ahead...new batteries!  It's a simple way to remember and ensure your batteries are fresh.  Smoke detectors save lives, make sure your's work.  It has been said that roughly 30 percent of fire alarms installed in homes do not work, due to many reasons, one of them being that the owners didn't replace dead batteries.  In the United States, the National Fire Protection Association estimates that nearly two-thirds of deaths from home fires occur in properties without working smoke alarms/detectors.1  Make sure that's not you!  When in doubt, swap 'em out!
