This is the weekend when you turn your clock back for the end of the Daylight Saving Time-and it’s also the time you are reminded to check or replace the batteries in your smoke detectors.
Jeff Chapman of the Clinton Fire Department says checking the batteries is always good advice.
Chapman noted that it’s been ten years since the Clinton Fire Department started the effort install smoke detectors in any home that wants them. He says they’ve installed smoke detectors in 5-thousand homes over the years.
Chapman says the free smoke detector installation program is on-going. If you have smoke detectors that need the battery changed, Chapman says the department will help with that.
All you need to do is call the non-emergency number at the Central Fire Station for the free smoke detectors or help with changing the battery. That number is 242-0125
