Wellesley fire chief reminds you to check smoke & CO alarms this weekend
With Daylight Savings this weekend, the Red Cross is reminding everyone that with the turning ahead of clocks, it's time to test your smoke alarms.
This Sunday is the day to move your clocks forward one hour for daylight saving time. "When you change your clocks on March 12, the Milton Fire Department wants everyone to take the time to install new batteries in all alarms".
Nearly two-thirds of home fire deaths result from fires in properties without a working smoke detector, according to the National Fire Protection Association. Alarms equipped with sealed-in batteries should be tested to ensure they are in proper working condition. If you notice an intermittent Chirping sound, this means the battery is low and must be replaced.

Essentially, there are three different types of smoke alarms: ionization, photoelectric, and dual sensor. Special smoke alarms are also available for those who are deaf or hearing-impaired. Whether you are awake or asleep, a working smoke detector is always on alert, scanning the air for fire and smoke.
Brock said he very seldom sees serious injuries in homes or businesses where there are working smoke detectors.
Some of the newer smoke alarms use lithium batteries. Additionally, develop an escape plan with your family or housemates with two ways out of each room. You can request an alarm and installation at getasmokealarm.org.
