Winter is Coming... on SouthCoast, MA
It’s that time of year again…
It’s time to FALL BACK! The U.S. Fire Administration recommends that Daylight Saving Time be a reminder for you to change the batteries in your smoke and fire detectors, and ensure that they’re working properly. To test that your alarms are working, you should:
- Station a family member at the furthest point away from the alarm to help make sure the alarm can be heard everywhere in your home
- Press and hold the test button on the smoke detector. It can take a few seconds to begin, but a loud, siren-like noise should emanate from the smoke detector while the button is pressed.
It is important to remember that this protocol is recommended at both the beginning and end of Daylight Saving Time to make certain that your alarms are in safe, working condition in the event of a fire.
We hope this blog has been informative and resourceful for your home and that the end of Daylight Saving Time is good to you!
