Smoke and CO Detectors Tip

Spring is a great time to test your smoke and CO detectors. It is important to your family’s health and safety to ensure they are working properly. You should find a test button on each of them. Pressing the test button should confirm that they are working as expected. Also, once you have tested them you should replace the batteries. Not all smoke and CO detectors have a hard-wired back-up. Consequently, if the batteries die you will not be alerted by these devices. For that reason, if you make it a habit to replace them each spring, you won’t have to worry.
