change the batteries - 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.

 

 

Time to Spring Ahead. . .

Just  a quick reminder that Daylight Savings Time begins at 2:00 am Sunday, March 10th.

So, Saturday night, don’t forget to move your clocks forward an hour so you’ll be on time for your Sunday activities.  Use that extra hour to change the batteries in your smoke alarms and flashlights.

Don’t forget the importance of a Carbon Monoxide Detector.  Learn more about the importance of Carbon Monoxide Detectors.

Spring is coming.  You can smell the flowers (especially at the Flower Show).  Soon we will be planting our gardens and enjoying the new blooms.

Protect your family, remember you can’t smell carbon monoxide so get that detector today!

Stay safe and enjoy all that Spring offers!
