As you turn you clocks back to standard time this weekend the Flin Flon Fire Department wants you to also think about fire safety. Fire Chief Jim Petrie says it’s time to change the batteries in your smoke detector. He explains smoke detectors are extremely important as they’re a life saving device and they’re to wake you up at 2 o’clock in the morning if you have smoke in your home or a fire. He says it’s a very inexpensive thing just to replace the batteries in your detector every year at this time.
Petrie also reminds you to create and practice a home escape plan and make sure your chimney is clean.
