Don’t forget to set your clocks forward one hour tonight as we spring forward into Daylight Saving Time. And make sure to change the batteries in all your smoke alarms, carbon monoxide detectors, and flashlights. Working smoke alarms are critical to helping save your life. If you installed the 10 year lithium smoke alarms, then you have eliminated the need for batteries every year; however, a little spring cleaning for your home safety devices will ensure they are free of dust or defect. Other steps to help keep your family safe include residential home sprinklers, a home escape plan, and general preparedness for various natural disasters, such as wildfires, floods, earthquakes, etc. Having a plan and making sure you have all the equipment/items you need will help in your families safety.
