DAYLIGHT SAVINGTIME ENDS THIS WEEKEND.
THAT MEANS IT’S TIME TO CHANGE YOUR CLOCKS BACK AN HOUR.

IT ALSO MEANS IT IS TIME TO CHANGE THE BATTERIES IN YOUR SMOKE AND C-O ALARMS.

SIOUX CITY FIRE RESCUE SUGGESTS CHANGING YOUR SMOKE ALARM BATTERIES AT LEAST TWICE A YEAR.

THEY USE THE BEGINNING AND END OF DAYLIGHT SAVING TIME EACH FALL AND SPRING AS A REMINDER.

FIRE OFFICIALS ALSO RECOMMEND TO TEST YOUR SMOKE ALARMS MONTHLY AND WHILE REPLACING YOUR BATTERIES, REMEMBER TO CHECK THE AGE OF YOUR ALARM.

IF A SMOKE ALARM IS MORE THAN TEN YEARS OLD, IT SHOULD BE REPLACED.

IF YOU HAVE HARD-WIRED SMOKE ALARMS, THEY ALSO REQUIRE BATTERY REPLACEMENT.

SIOUX CITY FIRE RESCUE OFFERS A SAFE HOME PROGRAM WHERE THEY PROVIDE A FREE HOME INSPECTION AND INSTALL UP TO 2 FREE ALARMS IN YOUR HOME.
