change batteries in smoke detectors - Spencer Insurance Agency, Inc

Turn the clocks back and check your smoke detectors and fire extinguishers.


This Saturday night we welcome the extra hour sleep as we turn the clocks back one hour.

But don’t forget the more important task when turning clocks back:  Check your smoke detectors and fire extinguishers.

If you have smoke detectors that have removable batteries then change those batteries.  Many of the smoke detectors today have a battery life of 10 years and then you need to throw it out and get a new one. So check the date on the smoke detector to see how old it is.  Don’t wait!  If it is 10 years old replace it.

While you are at it, check your fire extinguishers to make sure they still have a full charge.  If not replace them or have them serviced.

Spend a little time checking.  After all you did get an extra hour of sleep.  It could save your life.



Turn the clocks back and replace the batteries!

Time to set the clocks back one hour this Sunday November 5th.  Nice that we get an extra hour sleep.

Don’t forget to change the batteries in your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors.

Enjoy your extra hour sleep!
