Sunday, November 1st. most of us will be changing our clocks as Day Light Saving time comes to an end. The good news about this time change is you’ll have the opportunity to get an extra hour of sleep. This also serves as a great reminder to change the batteries in your Smoke/Carbon Monoxide detectors as well as double check that your fire extinguishers are still fully charged and operational. You want to do everything to protect your home and family.
Don’t put it off. You don’t want to wind up being haunted in the middle of the night by the death chant of a dying battery in your smoke detector. Just like the professionals you also want to have the confidence that your fire extinguisher or any fire fighting equipment will work properly when you need it. Do it any time this weekend or next, before or after your favorite game and make it a standard routine twice a year – at each time change, do it. Get the family involved in making creative reminders or a master check list you can all keep track off. Remember the life you save may be your own.
This is also a perfect opportunity to discuss with the kids, fire safety and how to use escape routes in case of a fire and where the evacuation meeting place is located.
