Time change a good reminder to check your smoke detectors
Daylight Saving Time comes to an end this weekend. Don’t forget to set your clocks back one hour before heading to bed on Saturday.
And as the clocks fall back this weekend, local fire departments are reminding residents to change the batteries in smoke detectors, and take a look at the carbon monoxide detectors.
Jonathon Welsh with the Courtenay Fire Department says wired-in smoke detectors should also have a battery back-up. He says if yours does not, it’s time to upgrade.
Welsh says the time change is also a good reminder to get your chimney cleaned in preparation for the colder weather.
