According to NFPA, two-thirds of the people who die in home fires did not have a working smoke alarm. Turlock Fire Department would like to remind all citizens, that a great time to change the batteries in their smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors is when daylight savings time begins on Sunday March 9, 2014.
Turlock Fire Department has developed a smoke detector program to assist low income families, the physically impaired and the senior members in our community with changing their batteries.
A Life-Saving Test: • Check your smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors regularly Replace the batteries in your smoke alarm and carbon monoxide detectors twice a year, or as soon as the alarm "chirps" warning that the battery is low.
• Never "borrow" a battery from a smoke alarm and carbon monoxide detectors
• NEVER disable smoke alarms.
• Smoke alarms don't last forever.
• Replace yours once every 10 years.
• Plan regular fire drills
