Just a Reminder...

Tacoma Fire Department would like to remind everyone that when you change your clocks tonight for daylight savings time, be sure to change the batteries in your home's smoke alarms as well.

When smoke alarms fail, it is usually because batteries are missing, disconnected or dead. Smoke alarms that are properly installed and maintained play a vital role in reducing fire deaths and injuries.

For more information about installing and maintaining smoke alarms visit the National Fire Protection Association or United States Fire Administration.
