  • Daylight Saving Time an Opportunity to Check on Smoke, Carbon Monoxide Detectors

On March 11 at 2 a.m., clocks need to be set forward one hour for daylight saving time.

Three out of five home fire deaths result from fires in properties without working smoke alarms. The manufacturer date can be found on the back of the smoke alarm.

For smoke alarms with any other type of battery, replace batteries at least once a year (preferably twice a year during daylight saving time).

Firefighters will also install smoke detectors for the elderly or disabled living in Beckley city limits for free.

Along with testing your detector, Red Cross officials say to change your batteries often and make sure you keep up with how long you've had your smoke detector, it's advised you replace them every 10 years.

Anyone can walk into a store and purchase a smoke alarm for as little as $10.

Persons who can't afford smoke alarms should call local fire departments, as many fire departments have a smoke alarm assistance program. Do they all have working batteries? But the smoke detector is just one part of the equation. He says many of those could have been prevented if smoke alarms were present in the home and were properly working.

The time to talk about smoke detectors is before a fire breaks out.

Jason Keeling, American Red Cross said, "Around 39 people died in 2017 in West Virginia because their smoke alarms didn't work". Taking the time to practice both a primary and secondary escape plan is vital for knowing what to do if a real emergency were to occur.

Install smoke alarms. If someone doesn't have smoke alarms, install them.

Test alarms once a month using the test button. If a battery is starting to lose its power, the unit will usually chirp to warn you.
