Clocks Change / Battery Replacement

This was forwarded to me, great advice.

Important reminder - when you are walking about your house changing the time on your clocks, coffemakers, microwaves, etc, take a moment to change the batteries in your smoke alarms.

After all, it doesn't matter if you know what time it is if you are having smoke inhalation "issues"!

Even electrically powered smoke alarms can have back-up batteries, and your CO detector may need a battery too.

You also want to suck the dust out of your detectors with a vacuum, and if the smoke alarm is older than 10 years, you should replace it (CO alarms should be replaced every 7 years).
