New York Firemen's Association Says to Check Your Fire Alarms When You Turn Back Your Clocks
Saturday, October 31, 2015 11:26 AM EDT
On November 1st, Daylight Savings Time comes to an end so it's time to set your clocks back an hour.
The New York Firemen's Association says you should use this event to also check your fire alarms.
"According to NFPA statistics, three out of every five home fire deaths happen in a home with no smoke alarms or non-working smoke alarms," said Broome County Deputy Fire Coordinator Jeff Winchell.
That's why state lawmakers passed a bill over the summer requiring stores to only sell smoke alarms that have permanent batteries that will last ten years.
