Fall Back and a Home Safety Tip

Fall Back and a Home Safety Tip
On Sunday, November 4th, it's time to set your clocks back one hour. We all know this is a good reminder to change the batteries in your home's smoke and CO detectors, but do you know that smoke detectors expire after 10 years and carbon monoxide detectors only last 5-7 years? 

It's not enough to check and change the batteries regularly, these safety devices may need to be replaced. 

Consider when your home was built, or how long you've lived in your home... If you've never changed your smoke detectors, there's no time like the present.
