Time To Change The Clocks Time To Change The Batteries


While moving your clocks back an hour for the end of Daylight Saving Time Saturday night, don’t forget to change the batteries in your smoke detectors and carbon monoxide detectors. The time change is about every 6 to 7 months, which is a convenient time to also change your batteries. Waupun Fire Chief B. J. DeMaa says a lot of detectors are now equipped with built in lithium batteries so they are good for ten years and then you throw them out. But he also advises checking the manufacturing date on the back of your detectors and if they are older than 10 years old they should be tossed out. If the detector has no manufacturing date on it chances are it is much older than 10 years old.
