Additional information related to smoke detectors

Change battery: Replace the batteries in your smoke alarm at a minimum of once a year. Mesquite Fire Rescue recommends you do this when you change your clocks to Daylight Savings Time each fall.

Test detector: When was the last time you heard your smoke alarm? Battery-operated alarms should be tested once a month to make sure they are working.
