Daylight Saving Time ends; Change your clocks and your smoke alarms
06 November 2017, 12:09 | Rufus Hill
CHANGE YOUR SMOKE DETECTOR BATTERIES FOR END OF DAYLIGHT SAVINGS TIME
While everyone will get an extra hour of sleep, the end of Daylight Saving Time means that it will get darker earlier.
St. Lawrence County residents are set to turn their clocks back tonight, and the Firemen's Association of NY is urging people to check their smoke alarm batteries.
The end of daylight saving time is also referred to as "winter time" and "fall back".
"Smoke alarms don't help if they are not in working order and the batteries in smoke alarms should be changed about twice a year", says Fire Marshal Merriman.
Smoke detectors should not be kept near windows, doors or ducts where drafts could interfere with their operation, officials said. Ensure that the alarms are interconnected. Smoke alarm replacement is recommended every ten years.
Working smoke alarms cut the risk of dying in a home fire in half, so encourage your friends and family to do the same.
Batteries are removed due to a "chirping sound", which actually indicates the battery needs to be replaced! Removable batteries should be replaced, and sealed-in batteries should be checked to confirm they are functioning.
Install at least one smoke alarm on every level of the home, including the basement.
