Spring Forward an Hour this Weekend and Check Smoke Alarms PDF Print
Written by Adam Hicks   
Friday, 06 March 2009 09:42

Don’t forget to set your clocks forward one hour before you go to bed on Saturday.

 

Fire Prevention Specialist with the Boone Fire Department, Matthew Crawford, said its also a good rule of thumb to check smoke detectors every time you have to change your clocks.

 

Crawford said batteries in smoke detectors should be checked twice a year and daylight savings time is a great time to check.

 

Crawford said any resident who needs a smoke detector should let the fire department know.  He explained, “If you don’t have a smoke alarm and you’re financially unable to provide one, you can give me a call at the Boone Fire Department at 268-6180.  If someone out in the county needs something, they can give me a call and I can get the right person the information.”
