Change batteries in smoke detectors along with clocks

CAL FIRE, (formerly CDF) Nevada-Yuba-Placer Unit Chief Brad Harris is urging everyone to change the batteries in all smoke detectors when they push their clocks up one hour Saturday night for daylight-saving time.

Here are guidelines to insure your family is protected:

– Test your smoke detectors once a month.

– Keep the detector clean.

– Change the batteries twice a year.

– Replace your smoke detectors every 10 years.

– Detectors need to be installed on every level of your home and inside of all bedrooms.

– Practice home fire drills twice a year.
