Firefighters know the importance of home fire safety. That's why the men and women of the Los Angeles Fire Department urge you to change all of your smoke alarm batteries as well as the batteries in your carbon monoxide (CO) detectors when you change your clocks back to Standard Time this weekend.
Daylight Saving Time Ends At 2:00am Sunday, November 4, 2012. Set Your Clock Back One Hour.
Please change your batteries!
The simple act of changing batteries and then testing these devices can protect you from two relentless killers. We can't think of an easier task that offers such reward!
FACT: You'd never let a simple convenience like your television remote control go without batteries. Why then ignore the most important devices in your home?
More information can be found on the official Facebook page for the Change Your Clock, Change Your Battery! campaign.
