Did you remember to replace the batteries in your smoke detectors and carbon monoxide detectors this weekend? Fire departments in the St Louis area (and across the US, for that matter) tell us to change our batteries at the same time we change our clocks. That is a great habit to start and stick to! Whether your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors are included in your home’s alarm system or not, the batteries should be changed regularly and the units themselves need to be replaced periodically.
However we know this is one of the multitude of details in your life, that can easily be overlooked. Yet it is crucial for the safety of everyone in the home. Working smoke detectors save lives. According to the NFPA, almost two-thirds of deaths from home fires were in homes without working smoke detectors. When smoke alarms fail to operate it is usually because of missing, disconnected or dead batteries.
