Change Your Clocks Check Your Smoke Alarm graphic

Daylight saving time ends at 2 a.m., Sunday, November 7,  and Cheyenne Fire Rescue (CFR) recommends testing smoke alarms.

CFR recommends replacing all smoke alarms that are 10 years old or older, testing smoke alarms at least once a month by using the test button, replacing the smoke alarm immediately if it doesn’t properly respond when tested, making sure everyone in the building knows and reacts to the smoke alarm sound, having a meeting place and a plan once the alarm sounds.

Smoke alarms with other battery types, a chirping alarm needs to be tested and checked. It could indicate a failing battery.
