Change Your Clock – Change Your Batteries!

The Ottawa Housing Market Blog would like to remind you to replace smoke alarm batteries when setting your clocks back one hour on Sunday, October 29, 2006.

Working smoke alarms provide early smoke detection, and can save your life and that of a loved one. Statistics show that fewer deaths or serious injuries occur in households where smoke alarms are installed and maintained.

As of March 1, 2006, an amendment in the Ontario Fire Code requires you to have a working smoke alarm outside every sleeping area and on every level of your home.

The best way to be safe is to be prepared before a fire strikes.
