:306 Smoke Detector Batteries

Take the 1:5:10:365 challenge: Do one thing – for 5 to 10 minutes – 365 days a year to make our home and planet environment better.

1:5:10:306 EcoTip: Check and clean your smoke detectors and carbon monoxide detectors. This is also a good time to change the batteries. Tonight is the daylight-savings-time change. Winter is on the way so it is important to service our detector units yearly -especially before the season when the risks of fire and carbon monoxide poisoning go up. As long as your having to remember to change the clocks –  might as well use this day as a yearly reminder to get the various detectors up to snuff.
