Standard Time resumes this weekend, and homeowners are being urged to change the batteries in the smoke and carbon monoxide detectors even as they change their clocks.

The Sycamore Fire Department says batteries in a smoke alarm should be changed at least twice a year, even if the detectors are hardwired into the electrical system. In the case of hardwired detectors, the battery will keep the detector functioning in the event of a power failure.

In addition to changing the batteries twice a year, you should test your smoke alarm every month by simply holding down on the test button.  You should also vacuum your alarm at least once a year; dust and cobwebs can impair sensitivity, and never paint over a smoke alarm.  In order to maintain the highest level of protection, the Sycamore Fire Department recommends that your smoke alarms should be replaced every 10 years.
