It’s Time To “Fall Back”

clockIt’s time to “fall back” again. At 2 a.m. Sunday, you’ll have to turn your clock back one hour, because it’s the end of daylight saving time.
It’s also time to change smoke alarm batteries. Local fire departments remind you to change batteries at least twice a year. You also need to test these alarms and reminding others to do the same are some of the simplest, most effective ways to reduce tragic deaths and injuries.
Working smoke alarms can increase your chances of surviving a fire by up to 50%. And don’t forget the batteries in your carbon monoxide alarms!
Like smoke alarms, carbon monoxide alarms also wear out. They need to be replaced according to manufacturer instructions about every 7 years.
Tullahoma and Manchester fire departments offer free smoke alarms to its residents. People living inside the city limits of either can contact their department for more information.
