Daylight Savings Time Has Ended – Change Smoke Alarm and Carbon Monoxide Batteries
On November 4th, everyone woke up after enjoying an “extra” hour of sleep. While most of our devices update automatically to the new time, there will always be an errant wall clock that has to be changed. If you’re like many of us, you probably didn’t get around to changing all of your clocks yet, so it’s the perfect time to remind all of our clients about the “Change Your Clock, Change Your Battery” campaign to raise awareness about the importance of changing both your smoke alarm and carbon monoxide batteries.
Smoke Alarms and Carbon Monoxide Detectors Save Lives
Fire chiefs across Canada are raising awareness about changing smoke alarm and carbon monoxide batteries and are urging homeowners to perform this task twice a year — when DST starts in the spring and ends in the fall. Changing batteries twice a year will go a long way in ensuring you and your family’s safety.
We’d like to remind all of our customers to take a few minutes today and change all the batteries in their smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors throughout the house. Remember, there should be a smoke alarm on every floor and outside each sleeping area. Carbon monoxide detectors are required near all sleeping areas and in any service rooms.
While you are changing the batteries, also make sure to test the units by pressing the “test” button on each device. If it chirps, you know that it’s in proper working order.
We take your home safety seriously and hope that you’ll participate in the “Change Your Clocks, Change Your Battery” campaign.
Contact us if you have any questions or concerns — we’re always happy to help.
