A SAFETY TIP FOR ALL

As many as you know we turn the clocks ahead on Sunday March 9, 2008 at 2am and by doing this it is time to change the batteries in your smoke detectors and CO detectors.  Also after putting in new batteries also test your detectors and as always check with the directions with the manufacturing that made your detectors.
