March 8 marks the start of daylight-saving time and the Forsyth County Fire Department encourages residents to take this opportunity to change the batteries in smoke and carbon monoxide alarms.  

“Since we recommend changing batteries in smoke and carbon monoxide alarms every six to twelve months, changing batteries when you change clocks for daylight-saving time serves as the perfect reminder,” said Division Chief Jason Shivers. “Taking those few extra minutes to change the batteries could save someone’s life.”

Prior to replacing alarm batteries, review the recommendations provided by the unit’s manufacturer, and replace the units themselves every seven to ten years. It’s also important to test the alarms at least once a month by pressing the TEST button.

The Fire Department also reminds residents of the following safety precautions: 

•             Install a smoke alarm on every level of the home, in each bedroom and outside bedrooms in each sleeping area

•             Ensure smoke alarms are clean and free of dust

•             Dial 911 in case of any emergency

The Fire Department’s Public Safety Education Division provides battery-powered smoke alarms free of charge for senior citizens and residents in need. To receive more details about this program, contact the Forsyth County Fire Department at (770) 205-5699 or publiceducation@forsythco.com.
