"We have been working with the community to help with smoke alarm installations for years and this is a chance to reach as many of our residents as possible".

Keeling added, "We can prevent it and the American Red Cross is moving forward with its home fire campaign to let people know about the importance of working smoke alarms". If the alarm chirps on these units, warning that the battery is low, replace the entire smoke alarm right away. "It's important to make sure that they changes these out every six months or buy the newer technology that have a 10 year span". And, in homes with working alarms that simply fail to operate, it is usually because of batteries were missing, disconnected, or dead. If you can not reach the button easily, use a broom handle.

Smoke alarms with non-replaceable (long-life) batteries are available and are created to remain effective for up to 10 years. "Once they are over 10-years-old you need to replace them with a new alarm".

This weekend, Daylight Saving Time begins.

NEVER borrow a battery from an alarm to use somewhere else. "If it doesn't have a date on it, it's over 10-years-old". Share and practice the plan with all who live in the home, including children.

DO NOT remove the batteries from your smoke alarms to put in other appliances.
