Change Your Clock, Check Your Smoke Alarm

Is your smoke alarm still working? A smoke alarm with a dead or missing battery is the same as having no smoke alarm at all. On Sunday, November 6 when resetting your clocks for Daylight Saving Time, make sure your smoke alarms work and replace the batteries, if necessary. Take care of your smoke alarms according to the manufacturer’s  instructions, and follow these tips from the U.S. Fire Administration (USFA):
Smoke alarm powered by a nine-volt battery  
Smoke alarm powered by a 10-year lithium (or “long-life”) battery  
Smoke alarm that is hardwired into your home's electrical system
