Change Your Batteries!

Posted on October 28, 2014

This Saturday, November 1st, please remember to change all clocks back one hour! The Hillsdale Fire Department would like to also recommend that when doing this, make sure you change all smoke detector and carbon monoxide batteries in your home. By making sure all detectors have fresh batteries and are working properly, you increase your chances of getting out safely when there is a fire in your home. According to the National Fire Protective Association, more than 2,500 people die every year in structure fires. Of these 2,500 people, more than 60 percent died in homes that did not have working smoke detectors!

Congrats!
