Change Batteries in Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Alarms When Setting Your Clocks
Nov. 1 marks the end 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.
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
