Cleveland, Ohio (WJW) – The Cleveland Fire Department wants to remind everyone of one of the key elements of fire safety.
At 6:05 pm on Saturday, October 31, an emergency siren will sound for a minute, urging people to replace the smoke detector batteries.
The clock will fall back during daylight savings time this weekend.
“The operation of the smoke detector saves lives,” said Mayor Frank G. Jackson. “When you change your watch this Saturday, it’s a good idea to change the smoke detector battery as well. It may only save the lives of your loved ones.”
The “Change Clock, Change Battery” campaign is a national fire safety program sponsored by the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) and locally approved by the Cleveland Fire Department and the American Red Cross.
The Cleveland Fire Department limits the supply of batteries available to residents on a first-come, first-served basis.
Residents can request a smoke detector by calling (216) 361-5535 if they do not yet have a smoke detector on all floors of the house and in every room where people sleep.
