Change Your Clock, Change Your Smoke Detector
Daylight Savings Time ended at 2:00am on Sunday November 2, 2014. When you change your clock, change smoke detector. Install a sealed-in lithium battery detector. Starting July 1, 2013, any battery-powered smoke alarm or combination (smoke and carbon monoxide) alarm approved for sale by the state fire marshal must be powered by a sealed, 10-year battery.
Smoke detectors do save lives.
- Install smoke alarms in every bedroom, outside each sleeping area and on every level of your home.
- Test your smoke alarms every month.
- When a smoke alarm sounds, get outside, call 911 and stay outside.
- Replace all smoke alarms in your home every 10 years
