Don't forget to change your clocks AND your smoke detector / carbon monoxide detector batteries on Sunday, November 5th!
The National Fire Protection Association reports that 71% of smoke alarms which failed to operate had missing, disconnected or dead batteries. This reinforces how important it is to take this time each year to check smoke and carbon monoxide detectors. The Dunedin Fire Department would like to remind you of the importance of batteries not only in smoke alarms, but also the full range of devices that help keep us safe, secure and comfortable in our homes.
You can also use social media to help spread the word and remind friends and family to change the batteries in their smoke and carbon monoxide detectors, along with all of their connected home devices on November 5.
