On Sunday we “spring ahead” to Daylight Saving Time.
Danbury Fire Department is using this event to remind people to change the batteries in their Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Alarms. By ensuring that the batteries in these life-saving tools are fresh, fire officials say residents can double the chances of surviving a home fire. They add that the cost of replacing the batteries in these detectors is a small price to pay for a family’s safety.
The New Fairfield Fire Marshal's Office says for those with a 10-year sealed battery, people should test the detectors.
