I am sure you don’t need another reminder to set your clocks back however this is not the main reason for this blog. Changing your clocks is a great reminder to do some home safety.
Spencer Insurance Agency suggests you do all of the following when you set your clocks ahead in the Spring and when you push them back in the Fall:
- Replace all the batteries in your smoke detectors and clean them so they are free of dust or dirt. A few years back one of my smoke detectors went off and a neighbor called the fire department. It turned out my smoke detector was just dusty. I little embarrassing but what a great neighbor! Nice to know people in your neighborhood care.
- Check your carbon monoxide detectors to make sure they are still working.
- Check the tags on your fire extinguishers to make sure they are not out of date. Replace them or have them serviced if needed.
These are a few small steps to take now to save you from a fire claim later. Remind your friends and family to do the same. Our goal is to help you prevent claims. Your Protection and Peace of Mind is our only Business!
Thank you for the trust you put in Spencer Insurance Agency!
