Change Your Clock, Change Your Battery

Daylight Savings Time is about to run out for the year.

Tomorrow night, we’ll all have to set our clocks back an hour.

And fire departments suggest also changing the batteries in your smoke detectors.

Energizer Battery and the country’s fire departments have joined up for the Change Your Clock, Change Your Battery program every year since 1988.

The Marquette Fire Department recommends having a working smoke alarm in every bedroom and hallway, and one in the basement.

The fire department also says a smoke detector that’s more than 10 years old is too old to be reliable and should be replaced.

Energizer says about 20% of American homes don’t have any smoke detectors that work.
