Encourage Fire Safety While Springing Ahead

Wednesday, 16 February 2011

Daylight Savings Time begins March 13, and as communities prepare to “spring ahead” one hour, Fire Corps teams can use this time to remind residents to stay fire safe by changing their smoke alarm batteries. Alkaline batteries should be replaced at least once a year, and a good rule of thumb is to change the batteries when you change your clocks.

If smoke alarms are needed in your community, Fire Corps teams can help by utilizing the Fire Corps smoke alarm donation program sponsored by First Alert. Your registered Fire Corps program may apply for these free smoke alarms by simply filling out the Smoke Alarm Request Form. Please keep in mind that quantities are limited and restrictions apply.

Find additional resources for implementing a smoke alarm campaign in your community from the USFA’s Install. Inspect. Protect. campaign.
