Wico. Co. Emergency Services: Change your clock, change your batteries


As you change your clocks this weekend, ReadyWisconsin suggests also changing batteries in smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors.

"The annual change to daylight saving time is the flawless opportunity to make sure your smoke alarms are working properly", Hudgens said.

Residents should also test smoke alarms, which is recommended once a month. This is a great time to take care of a couple of other important tasks, too, says East Jefferson Fire Rescue public information officer Bill Beezley. Smokey Barn News has confirmed with Fire Departments in Springfield, Portland, Guthrey KY Volunteer, Ridgetop, White House Community, White House City, North Robertson Fire and Pleasant View, all said they would be happy to come to your home and change smoke detectors batteries for those with health-related issues. Date each unit when they are installed and replace them after ten years - or sooner if they do not successfully pass the test by sounding the alarm when the test button is pressed.
