Low battery warning

The Spokane Valley Fire Department is coming out with its semi-annual warning to change the batteries in smoke detectors and carbon monoxide detectors this weekend when the time changes. Daylight saving time starts on Sunday and replacing the batteries whenever the time changes is an easy way to remember the task.

A working smoke alarm reduces a person's chance of dying in a fire by half, according to a Valley Fire press release. They recommend installing smoke detectors on every level of the home and outside bedrooms. Detectors should also be tested once a month to make sure they are working correctly. Detectors that are more than 10 years old should be replaced.
