Two nights till “spring forward” – don’t forget the batteries

A reminder from your friendly neighborhood Fire Department: When you set your clocks ahead Saturday night (Sunday morning), change your smoke-detector batteries too; and if you need a detector, you might be able to get one free.

    Do some detector batteries really need to be changed this often? I change mine when they make that annoying beeping “reminder” sound – to do otherwise seems pretty wasteful.

    Robert, I hear what you are saying, but, how much is your house worth to you? One way of avoiding excess waste would be to use the batteries you take out in something a little less “critical,” like TV remotes, digital cameras, etc.
