Daylight Savings Time is a Perfect Reminder to Maintain the Detectors in Your Home

Daylight savings time is always a reminder to check the batteries of your smoke detectors and carbon monoxide detectors in your home. According to stats provided by The National Fire Protection Association, over 70% of smoke alarms fail due to missing or dead batteries. Taking the time to maintain your smoke alarm and all of your other devices during daylight savings can be the difference between a life or death situation.

Here are a few tips to keep in mind to ensure your family is safe.

#1 Replace Old Smoke Detectors

Over time, a smoke alarm can malfunction due to age. Purchasing a new smoke detector will give you peace of mind to know that it will work in the event of an emergency.

#2 Test and Replace Batteries

Taking a few minutes to check and replace batteries in a smoke alarm is well worth the effort. Performing these checks during daylight savings is an easy way to remember this otherwise easily forgettable step.

#3 Develop an Escape Plan

A fire can occur in your home due to a variety of reasons. Always staying prepared for such a dangerous scenario is essential in keeping you and your entire family protected. Creating an escape plan to get out of your home in less than two minutes is critical in situations involving fire in the home.
