Keep your Family Safe

Home Safety Tips

Change the batteries in your smoke detectors twice a year – here’s a great idea – change your batteries when your spring forward and fall back. It’ll be an easy task to remember if you always change your batteries when you change your clocks!

To be extra safe, practice escape plans with your family at this time as well.

It is also important to test that your alarm is working properly once every month.

Replace your detectors every ten years to ensure optimum safety.

** Don’t forget about that sneaky killer – carbon monoxide. Install at least one CO detector near where you sleep so that in case of emergency it will wake you up in time to vacate the home.
