Change your clock, check your smoke detector

​As we get set to turn our clocks forward this weekend, the City of Lethbridge Fire & Emergency Services encourages residents to also check their smoke detectors. The expiry date should be reviewed annually and putting in fresh batteries is an important step to ensure smoke detectors are working properly. If your smoke detector is more than 10 years-old, it will need to be replaced.

Having a working smoke alarm is the best way to protect your family in the case of a fire. Fire crews have noticed an increase alarm calls over the past year due to cooking. In most cases, no one was seriously hurt and this can be attributed to smoke alarms warning people to leave their homes.

Spend a few minutes to make sure everyone in your home recognizes the sound of the smoke alarm and knows what to do in case of a fire.
