NY volunteer firefighters: Time to check smoke alarms

It’s time to spring ahead and gain an hour of light in the evening. Daylight Saving Time begins at 2 a.m. on Sunday March 11

According to research from the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), three of every five home fire deaths occur in homes without working smoke alarms, and the vast majority of smoke alarm failures are due to dead or missing batteries.

"The batteries should be changed periodically and a good way to remember is that is to do it when you change your clocks", said Trego in a press release.

According to the National Fire Protection Association, nearly two-thirds of home fire deaths resulted from fires in structures without working smoke alarms.

Daylight Saving Time begins at 2 p.m. Sunday, March 11.

DO NOT remove the batteries from your smoke alarms to put in other appliances.

Barritt emphasizes that if a person has any questions about their smoke and carbon monoxide alarms to contact the fire department.

New Yorkers are also encouraged to purchase ten-year smoke alarms, which are equipped with sealed in, non-removable batteries that last at least ten years.

Additionally, the International Association of Fire Chiefs recommends replacing smoke alarms every 10 years. Date each unit when is it installed and replace it after 10 years or sooner if it does not successfully sound the alarm when the test button is pressed. Replace the entire smoke alarm every 10 years.

Smoke alarms with non-replaceable (long-life) batteries are available and are created to remain effective for up to 10 years.

This weekend we spring ahead for daylight saving time.

Always follow the manufacturer's instructions for testing smoke alarms and replacing the batteries.
