Clock change means time to check smoke and carbon monoxide (CO) detectors

By Lethbridge Herald on November 6, 2021.

The City of Lethbridge is reminding residents to make sure they turn back their clocks one hour on Saturday evening when Daylight Saving Time comes to an end.

The change happens annually on the first Sunday in November.

Lethbridge Fire & Emergency Services is encouraging residents to also check their smoke and carbon monoxide (CO) detectors.

The expiry date should be reviewed annually and putting in fresh batteries is an important step to ensure smoke and CO detectors are working properly. If your smoke or CO detector is more than 10 years old, it will need to be replaced.

According to the City, fire crews have noticed an increase in alarm calls over the past year due to cooking. In most cases, no one was seriously hurt and this can be attributed to smoke alarms warning people to leave their homes.

Sure, I will keep that in my mind and I will do it when I have time. I work for one of the dissertation writing services and these days, I am busy a lot and because of this, I don’t have time to do other things. I will save your post, for now, in case I forgot about it.
