CHANGE YOU’RE CLOCKS…CHANGE YOUR BATTERIES

It’s here!  The changing of clocks for the end of Daylight Saving Time starts THIS Sunday, November 6th at 2 am.

Every year, the Redwood City Fire Department urges residents to use the time change as a reminder to change the battery in their smokes detectors, vacuum/clean the device, and test for operational effectiveness. Any inoperative smoke detector should be replaced immediately. An operational smoke detector in the home will provide the early warning notification of a fire and permits the occupants to evacuate the residence in the early stages of a fires development. Properly operating smoke detectors do save lives!

Also, carbon monoxide detectors are now required for one and two family homes – toxic levels of carbon monoxide can result from improperly operating appliances used for heating, cooking, and heating water. These devices protect the occupants from the silent killer, carbon monoxide, that is odorless, color less, and tasteless.

For more information on this and other important fire safety measures visit our website at www.redwoodcity.org/fire or the National Fire Protection Association at www.nfpa.org
