You Changed Your Clocks. Did you change Your Batteries?

Lakeside, CA - 

It's hard to believe it's that time of the year again. Time to change the batteries in your smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors. It is a fact that a working smoke alarm doubles your chance of surviving a home fire.

After inserting a fresh battery in each smoke alarm and carbon monoxide detector, push the safety test button to make sure alarms are in proper working condition. Conduct this test monthly. Never disconnect your smoke alarm battery. Remember that a "chirping" sound is a signal that a smoke alarm needs a new battery.
