This weekend, we change our clocks and our batteries, in our smoke alarms that is. Fire safety officials use this time each spring and fall to encourage residents to take time to check the batteries of their smoke alarms.
Radcliff Deputy Fire Marshall Tommy Crane says alarms should be clear and loud in case of emergency. Crane also says residents should replace smoke alarms older than 10 years old. Crane also says residents who aren’t able to purchase new smoke alarms can contact the American Red Cross, which runs a program designed to get smoke alarms installed in homes.
