Change Your Clocks, Change Your Alarm Batteries

Carbon monoxide and smoke detectors need new batteries once a year. Central Fire will even change the batteries for you.

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, many fire departments can install battery-operated alarms or change the batteries in existing alarms. This is often a free service offered for residents.
