Turn the Clocks Back and Change the Smoke Alarm Batteries!

Daylight savings time is this weekend, and almost all Americans will have to turn their clocks back in order to compensate for the new hour. According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission there is another job that you will need to complete this Daylight Savings.

You should also change the batteries in your smoke alarms and carbon monoxide alarms every Daylight Savings to ensure that they are working properly and can protect you from harmful fumes and fires. According to the CPSC, two-thirds of all fires occur in homes without smoke alarms or with smoke alarms that aren’t working. The CPSC also recommends that all consumers test their alarms once a month and place smoke alarms on every level of the home. This will ensure that the family is protected against a defect smoke alarm that would fail to wake them in the event of a fire.

The fire departments of America responded to more than 366,700 residential fires nation-wide this year, and these resulted in more than 2,300 deaths. Over 12,500 people were injured in the accidents and more than $7.09 billion in property losses every year. In addition to checking to make sure that your smoke alarms are working, ensure that your carbon monoxide alarms and detectors are operating. These important fixtures will warn you if the odorless, colorless CO gases become too strong and pose a danger to you and your family.

If your smoke or carbon monoxide detectors are not working, then you need to talk to a personal injury attorney today to get more information about product liability lawsuits. You have the right to sue a manufacturer who has created a defect product that doesn’t perform as was promised on the packaging. Talk to a lawyer at Klemick and Gampel today for more information!
