This weekend we turn our clocks back an hour in observance of daylight saving time (unless you live in Arizona). It’s also a great reminder to check your smoke detector battery.
Every smoke detector has a test button. Simply press it and wait for the beep. Most smoke detectors will also start beeping on their own when they start to wear down as a reminder to change the battery. Don’t ignore this warning.
Have a great weekend!
