Change the clocks – Change the batteries

dectector

As we “Fall Back” and end Daylight Savings Time remember that it is a great idea to “change your clock and change your battery”. Smoke and carbon monoxide detectors save lives and are only effective when powered correctly. Also remember to change the batteries AND time on any frequently used medical devices such as “life alerts”, glucometers, insulin pumps, pulse oximetry units, and automated blood pressure monitors. Phones and computers automatically account for time changes, however, many¬† personal medical devices require the user to manually change the internal clock. If you are physically unable or do not know how to change the batteries in your smoke and/or carbon monoxide detectors contact your local fire department for assistance.
