Change your smoke alarm batteries while you "spring forward" this weekend
To kick off Daylight Savings Time, clocks "spring forward" at 2am Sunday morning. Before everyone goes to bed, they'll change all of the clocks throughout their homes to reflect the time change. Lemont Fire District wants to remind everyone that this might also be a good time to change the batteries in all of your home's smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors.
To stay safe, replacing batteries in all smoke alarms should be done at least once a year, but changing them while changing all of your clocks serves as a great reminder. In addition, smoke alarms should be tested once a month and if an alarm "chirps", warning the battery is low, replace the battery right away.
Replace Aging Alarms
While you're changing the batteries, take a minute to check on the age of the alarm too.
The sensing technology wears out eventually and smoke alarms need to be replaced every ten years.
Carbon monoxide alarms typically last 5-7 years unless they have a ten-year lithium battery. An out-of-date alarm cannot be counted on to provide the needed early warning of danger.
Once again our Team Rockstar will be shaving their heads in solidaridty supporting St. Baldrick's in effort to raise money for childhood cancer research.

Move Right for Sirens & Lights
When the Fire Department is called to an emergency it is important that we respond quickly and safely.
If you are driving down the road and see the lights and sirens of an emergency vehicle in your rearview mirror, move to the right and stop to allow emergency vehicles to move easily down the road. Once the emergency vehicles have passed merge back into traffic when it is safe to begin driving.
Every time fire engines or aid cars are called to an emergency Fire Fighters are giving their all to help others. Do your part as a driver to help Fire Fighters do their job as quickly and safely as possible.
