This weekend, as time "falls back," the Delta Fire Department reminds everyone it's also a good time to change the batteries in smoke and carbon monoxide detectors. Most detectors that plug into an electrical outlet still have batteries for a backup.
The Federal Emergency Management Association says every home should have at least one working smoke alarm — it's inexpensive protection for you and your family. Test it monthly, keep it free of dust and replace the battery at least once a year. Smoke alarms should be replaced after 10 years of service.blog comments powered by Disqus
