When turning your clocks forward on March 14, take the time to check your smoke and carbon monoxide (CO) alarms. A smoke or CO alarm with a dead or missing battery is the same as having no alarm at all. Smoke and CO alarms only work when properly installed and regularly tested. Follow these tips to maintain your smoke and CO alarms and keep your family safe.
Smoke and CO alarm powered by a nine-volt battery
Smoke and CO alarm powered by a 10-year lithium (or “long-life”) battery
Smoke and CO alarm that is hardwired into your home's electrical system
Modern smoke and CO alarms will emit a ‘chirp’ that will indicate a low battery or the end of service life.
