Daylight savings is also a great time to change the batteries on your smoke alarms.
The Red Cross advises people to take a few minutes to test and replace batteries.
Working smoke alarms cut the risk of dying in a home fire in half.

• Install smoke alarms. At a minimum, put one on every level of the home, inside bedrooms and outside sleeping areas.

• Practice an escape plan. Make sure everyone in the household knows how to get out of every room and how to get out of the home in less than two minutes.

• Get a kit. Keep disaster supplies in an easy-to-carry bag to use at home or in case ordered to evacuate.

• Be informed. Learn what emergencies can occur in the area and how officials notify residents should a disaster occur.

Anyone in need of smoke alarms can make a request at and a Red Cross representative will be in contact to schedule a free installation
