As you set your clocks forward 1 hour tonight please change your smoke detector batteries also. Smoke detectors save lives.

According to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) smoke alarms are present in 96 percent of American homes, but 20 percent do not work due to worn or missing batteries. This means that almost 19 million homes are at needless risk. Almost two-thirds (62 percent ) of reported home fire deaths resulted from fires in homes with no smoke alarms or with non-working smoke alarms. A working smoke alarm can often provide critical extra seconds needed to get out safely.
