Domino rappelle tout le monde à changer leurs batteries d'alarme de fumée quand ils changent leurs horloges ce week-end

NFPA is actively supporting Domino’s annual spring campaign, which reminds everyone to change their smoke alarm batteries when they change their clocks for daylight saving time this Sunday, Mars 13.

“Domino’s reaches thousands of people through delivery on a daily basis, and we want to use that opportunity to share fire safety tips with families across the country,” said Jenny Fouracre, Domino’s spokesperson. “Daylight saving time is a great time to remember to change your smoke alarm batteries after you set your clocks ahead. This small step is an easy one, but it can help save lives.”

Working smoke alarms reduce the risk of dying in a fire in half. That’s why it’s so important to test them monthly and make sure they’re working properly. For smoke alarms with non-replaceable (long-life) batteries are designed to remain effective for up to 10 years. If the alarm chirps, warning that the battery is low, replace the entire smoke alarm right away. For smoke alarms that don’t have non-replaceable (long-life) batteries, replace the batteries at least once a year. If the alarm chirps, replace only the battery.

Visit our Smoke Alarm Central page for a wealth of additional information on smoke alarm installation, maintenance and testing. And remember to turn your clocks ahead one hour this Sunday!
