Sunday, November 2nd at 2 a.m. is the end of Daylight Saving Time! Don’t forget to turn your clocks back an hour before bedtime on Saturday and, equally important, change the batteries in all of your smoke detectors. You might just save a life by doing so!
Be sure to test your smoke detector after changing the battery. Don’t assume that it works; you may have inadvertently loosened a wire or the connection may not be properly reset. And while you’re at it, check to see if YOUR smoke detector has been recalled. If your smoke detector does not work properly when tested, is older than ten years or has been recalled, call Nisat Electric at (214) 536-5555 right away to schedule your smoke detector repair or replacement. Working smoke detectors save lives!
