A lot of emphasis has been placed on the outdoor fire danger recently, and that danger doesn’t appear to be going away anytime soon. As we get ready for the time change this weekend, we want everyone to take a moment and check your smoke detectors. Each year we remind everyone to “Change your clocks, change your batteries”. This year we are going one step further. We would like for everyone to check the date on their smoke detectors. Smoke detectors need to be less than 10 years old. Just last night a working smoke detector woke a family up during a fire. And, it is a proven fact that working smoke detectors saves lives. So please take the time this year to change your clocks, change your batteries, and check the date.
