When you set your clocks back one hour this fall, make SURE that you also change all smoke alarm batteries. AND check to see how old your smoke and carbon monoxide alarms are! Many manufacturers recommend replacement of these units after as soon as five (5) years!!
Now is also the time to consider having monitored smoke alarms! If a fire starts when no one is home, a monitored alarm can minimize property damage AND possible save the lives of your pets!
