Butte County – With Daylight Saving Time beginning on Sunday March 9, CAL FIRE/Butte County Fire is reminding its residents to check their smoke alarms to ensure they are working properly.
“The time it takes to change a battery and test an alarm can literally save a life,” states Unit Chief Greg McFadden. “Changing a battery, testing a hard-wired alarm and simple maintenance, including making sure they are clean and installed properly can be done is minutes.”
