Daylight Savings and Smoke Detectors

Posted on 11 March 2011 by KWBG

BOONE, Iowa—Boone Fire Chief Justin Adams says the Boone Fire Department encourages everyone to take time and replace their batteries in their smoke and carbon monoxide detectors this weekend. He says making it a habit when you change your clocks to daylight savings time and back in the fall will keep your detectors operating properly. Adams also says if you have a detector installed prior to March 2001, it’s time to invest in a new one. The general life of a detector is 10 years. He encourages people to look for the new detectors that detect fires two different ways.
