Sunday, March 10th, daylight savings begins to bring in spring and summer.
The best way to keep your family and pets safe is to have working smoke detectors in your home.
They should be placed inside every sleeping room, outside of every sleeping room in the vicinity and on all levels of the home. The smoke detectors should be cleaned and tested monthly and their batteries should be changed twice a year.
The Coeur d’Alene Fire Department suggests changing the batteries in your smoke detectors when you change your clock during the daylight savings times.
“Our number one goal is life safety and having a working and clean smoke detector in your home helps us accomplish this goal”, Fire Chief Kenny Gabriel states.
If you have questions on smoke detectors, feel free to contact the Coeur d’Alene Fire Prevention Bureau at 208-769-2245.
