The Oakmont Fire Company reminds us to change the batteries on our smoke detectors this weekend when we "Fall Back."
"Remember, smoke alarms must be maintained! All smoke alarms should be tested monthly and always maintained in tip-top condition. Check the manufacturer’s expiration date and specifications on the label, replace the batteries if needed and clean dust away so that smoke can enter freely.
Whether hardwired or battery driven, all smoke alarms should be replaced completely every ten years. These simple steps will help ensure that you and your family will have the best chance of surviving if fire should strike."
*NOTE: When selling your Haverford Township residence, to pass the Use & Occupancy Code Inspection, there must be a smoke detector above the outside of EACH BEDROOM DOOR. Keep that in mind!
