Nicole Mansmith is a real estate agent at Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage’s Cedarburg office. Today, she shares a tip in fire prevention for homeowners.
As many homeowners work on trimming bushes, raking leaves and doing last minute paint jobs on the exteriors of their homes this month, one very important thing not to overlook is changing your smoke detector batteries. October is Fire Prevention Month. As a homeowner, you should change the battery in your smoke detectors twice a year. A good way to remember is to switch out the batteries at daylight savings time in the spring and fall. When people sleep, the sense of smell is inhibited, and often times the smell of smoke is unnoticed. Smoke detectors play a vital role in surviving a house fire. Take the time to care for those that you love and remember to change out the batteries!
