Replacing home smoke detector batteries is a small and easy step that can mean the difference between life and death. Fresh batteries are critical to insuring smoke detectors work when fire breaks out. Nonetheless, changing those batteries is something people forget to do more often than not.
On Friday, November 5 from 4-6:00 pm, the Chicago Fire Department's Fire and EMS companies will be in service out in the community distributing smoke detector batteries and awareness flyers reminding the public that on Sunday, November 7th it's time to "Change Your Clock AND Change Your Smoke Detector Batteries."
