Reminder Daylight Saving Time is fast approaching this November and we would like to remind everyone of the simple life-saving habit of changing the batteries in your smoke and carbon monoxide alarms. Change the batteries when you change your clock! Where there is smoke, there is fire which can spread quickly. Working smoke alarms give you early warning, so you can get outside quickly.
