'Spring forward,' check smoke detector
It’s time to “spring forward” for Daylight Saving Time on Sunday, March 14, and the City of Bryan would like to remind residents to check the battery in their smoke detectors.
The Bryan Fire Marshal’s Office recommends having a detector in each sleeping area, the hallway that leads from those rooms to an exit and on each floor or level in the home. Having many and different types of detectors will give residents the best chance of an early warning.
Detectors with batteries should be checked often, with the battery replaced every six months. Residents can also vacuum the detector to prevent dust from causing false alarms.
Anyone who needs a smoke detector can call (979) 209-5960.
