CHANGE YOUR CLOCKS - CHANGE YOUR BATTERIES

2015-10-30

North Bay, October 29, 2015 – As the November 1st time change approaches, North Bay Fire & Emergency Services reminds residents to make another change this weekend that could save their lives - “Change the Batteries in your Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Alarms.” The message is simple and this 5 minute habit could be life saving. Most fatal fires occur at night when people are asleep. Often the victims never wake up. Changing smoke alarm batteries at least once a year, testing these alarms and reminding others to do the same are some of the simplest, most effective ways to reduce these tragic deaths and injuries.
