Daylight Saving Time ended on Nov. 4. Now is a good time to remember to change your smoke and carbon monoxide alarm batteries.
Many people remember to change their alarm batteries on one specific date during the year (Birthday, New Year’s Day, Christmas, Halloween). Daylight Saving Time is also a good reminder. For example: “You changed your clock, change your batteries.”
Smoke and carbon monoxide alarms are an essential part of your families’ home safety plan, but only if they are properly maintained. If you do not have a smoke
or carbon monoxide alarm in your home, Central Fire District personnel can install battery-operated alarms or change the batteries in existing alarms. This is a free service offered for residents living within the Central Fire Protection District.
If you do not live within Central Fire District, contact your local fire department.
For more information, contact the Fire Prevention Division at 930 17th Ave., Monday through Friday, between the hours of 8 a.m. and 5 p.m, call Central Fire Protection District at 479-6843 or check our website at www.centralfpd.com.
