Replacing your Smoke Detector Batteries
Bieritz Insurance Reminds Residents to Replace their Smoke Detector Batteries
COOPERSTOWN, NY (10/03/14): Bieritz Insurance Agency, a local business providing full spectrum insurance products and services, is reminding area residents to replace their batteries on smoke detection devices in their home.
According to the National Fire Protection Association, three out of five home fire deaths result from fires in properties without working smoke alarms, and the risk of dying in a home fire is cut in half in homes with working smoke alarms. There is no doubt that smoke alarms save lives. To help keep your family safe, stop in at the Bieritz Insurance Agency during the month of October and pick up a free 9v replacement battery for your smoke detector (while supplies last).
Typically, smoke detectors should be tested monthly and if they do not have a lithium 10-year (long life) battery, their 9v alkaline batteries should be replaced once each year. Smoke alarms that are hardwired into a home’s electrical system will usually have a back-up battery that needs to be replaced each year as well. In addition to changing your batteries, any smoke detector unit should be replaced every ten years.
