Just a friendly reminder that with the time change this Sunday it is the perfect time to double check the batteries in your smoke and CO alarms! If your alarm uses replaceable batteries, even if they are just back ups for hardwired units, it is a good idea put in fresh new ones, even if they aren’t that old (you can always keep the old batteries and use them in your TV remotes). Make sure you test your alarms once you install new batteries to ensure there is a good electrical connection. If your alarms use built-in lifetime batteries, you should still test your alarms and double check their expiry dates to ensure they are up to date and working properly! Remember, smoke and CO alarms expire after 10 years from their date of manufacture.
