Safety Reminder to Change your Clock - Change the Batteries  Picture of Clock

As the spring time change approaches, the Keller Fire Department wants to remind our residents to make another change that could save lives: changing the batteries in their smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors. Approximately two-thirds of home fire deaths result from fires in homes without working smoke alarms. Eighty percent of child fire fatalities occur in homes without working smoke alarms.

Changing smoke alarm batteries twice a year is one of the simplest, most effective ways to reduce tragic fire-related deaths and injuries. The most commonly cited cause of non-working smoke alarms is worn or missing batteries. It also is recommended to replace smoke alarms every 10 years and Carbon Monoxide detectors every 5-7 years due to decreased sensitivity. Picture of Smoke Detector

To save lives and prevent needless injuries in Keller, we recommend everyone adopt a simple, lifesaving habit: changing smoke alarm and carbon monoxide batteries when changing clocks twice a year and also testing them monthly.
