Reminder: Change smoke, carbon monoxide detector batteries when changing clocks 

 

(November 1, 2013)  The Frisco Fire Department recommends residents change batteries on all smoke and carbon monoxide detectors when they adjust their clocks to reflect Central Standar Time (CST), which takes effect early Sunday morning (2 a.m.) Nov. 3. 

“Smoke and CO detectors save lives by giving residents the advanced warning they need to escape” said Paul Siebert, Assistant Fire Chief. “It's extremely important to make sure these devices have good batteries so they work when needed”.

Siebert also recommends families review their home escape plan, also known as E.D.I.T.H., or Exit Drills In The Home. 

“We encourage families to practice their plan and know their outside meeting point," said Siebert.  "Practing a plan will help those same families provide us with critical information as we arrive at their home in an emergency." 

The 'Change Your Clock, Change Your Battery' campaign is supported by multiple national organizations including the National Fire Protection Association.
