Daylight Saving officially begins this weekend on Sunday, March 10, at 2
The two times a year we change our clocks also serve as a valuable reminder to change the batteries in our fire alarms. Only half of Americans actually follow this practice.
Here’s what you need to do:
- Lift, twist, or remove the cover. (In some cases, the whole alarm will come off from a base.)
- Replace the battery with a brand-new one. Most machines use 9-volt batteries.
- Close and snap the detector back into place.
- Press the test button to make sure it’s working. You should hear a beep or chirp sound.
Start off the spring season safely knowing your fire alarms are functioning properly!
