Remember to change your smoke detector batteries when you change your clocks!
The majority of fatal home fires happen at night when people are sleeping. Contrary to popular belief, the smell of smoke may not wake a person. The poisonous gases and smoke produced by a fire can numb the senses and put you into a deeper sleep.
Inexpensive household smoke detectors sound an alarm, alerting you to a fire. By giving you time to escape, smoke detectors cut your risk in half. Smoke detectors save so many lives that most states have laws requiring them in private homes.
Please make sure your smoke detectors and carbon monoxide detectors are in working condition. It is ideal to change your batteries every six months when you change your clocks.
If you have a group and would like to schedule a tour of the fire station, please call (859) 635-5991.
