Change Your Clock, Change Your Battery This Weekend

Posted: 1 Apr 2017
Daylight saving ends in NSW on Sunday, 2 April 2017 when clocks go back one hour at 3:00am.

Have You Changed Your Smoke Alarm Batteries?

The NSW Rural Fire Service and Fire Rescue NSW are once again supporting ‘Change Your Clocks, Change Your Smoke Alarm Battery’ at the beginning of daylight savings.

Every year, smoke alarms alert hundreds of NSW families to fires in their homes, allowing them a safe escape.

As we all prepare to turn our clocks back this weekend, the NSW Rural Fire Service and Fire Rescue NSW would like to remind NSW residents that it is vital to protect yourself and your family by making sure you have working smoke alarms.

Smoke alarms can save lives but only if they are in proper working order, and a smoke alarm with a flat battery is just as bad as no smoke alarm at all.

It only takes a few minutes for fire to engulf a home, destroying property, possessions and lives - so it is crucial to test your smoke alarm monthly and change the batteries at least twice a year.
