Change your Clock, Change your Batteries

11/1/2018

On November 4, it will be time to turn your clocks back an hour for daylight savings. This is a good time to check your smoke alarm and carbon monoxide detectors, change the batteries, and make sure they are in working order. The National Fire Protection Association reports that 71% of smoke alarms which failed to operate had missing, disconnected or dead batteries. Please take this simple and life-saving step to make sure your home and your family are safe!   


NEED SMOKE ALARMS INSTALLED? Contact the American Red Cross WV Region to request a smoke alarm installation. Call 1-844-216-8286 or visit their Home Fire Campaign website.
