Is Your Family Safe?
Change Your Clock, Change Your Battery
A home fire impacts the life of an American family every 85 seconds. By providing an early warning and critical extra seconds to escape, smoke alarms cut in half your family’s risk of dying in a home fire – but only if they work. So, when you turn your clocks ahead on March 8th, also make a life-saving change in your household – change the batteries in your smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors. This simple habit takes just a moment, but is the best defense your family has against the devastating effects of a home fire.
This reminder to Change Your Clock Change Your Battery comes from the North Shore Fire Department.
Please contact the North Shore Fire Department Public Education Office at 414-228-0292 for further information.
