The American Red Cross reminds everyone it's also a good time to TEST the batteries in their smoke alarms as they TURN their clocks ahead.
According to the National Fire Protection Association, three of every five home fire deaths happen because the smoke alarms weren't working. "Take a few minutes to replace your smoke alarm batteries and push the test button to make sure the alarms are working".
"When I heard about them putting in new smoke alarms that lasts 10 years, I thought it was great", Barnes said. If the smoke alarms are not working, the firefighters will replace them or install new batteries.
Replace batteries when you hear a chirping, popping or beeping sound.
Use the smoke alarm's hush feature to silence nuisance alarms. Here in west central OH, the Red Cross has installed 2,000 smoke alarms. If there is no date, your alarm is more than 10 years old and should be replaced. So far this year, 22 people across the state have died in 18 residential fires. Since inception, over 133,000 smoke alarms have been distributed across the state, with 177 documented alerts and saves resulting from the program.
If you need additional assistance or can not afford alarms, contact your local fire department, the American Red Cross, or call Vermont 2-1-1 to find out about smoke alarm installation programs in your community. Special smoke alarms are also available for those who are deaf or hearing-impaired. Whichever type of smoke alarms you choose, make sure they carry the label of a recognized testing laboratory. Remember, every family should have an EDITH (Exit Drills In The Home) plan. "Then take a step stool and some 9-volts to your parents or older neighbor's and ask if you can refresh their smoke alarms".
It's best to install a dual-purpose alarm in every bedroom, outside of every bedroom and on each floor of your home.
