Daylight Savings Is A Good Time For A Home Safety Check

Don’t forget to set your clock behind this weekend…and check your smoke alarms while you’re at it.

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission recommends replacing batteries in smoke and carbon monoxide alarms once a year. Fall is a good time as we head into the cooler season and may use more heaters or even fire inside the home.

Most carbon monoxide poisoning also occurs between November and February.

In addition to making sure your alarms are fully charged, the CPSC recommends making a fire escape plan and ensuring two clear paths to the outside. (UPI)
