Just a reminder please check every couple of months and if necessary replace the batteries in your smoke detectors. Batteries should be replaced once every year. It only takes a minute and will be the difference between life and death for your family. If you don't have smoke detectors, please purchase at least one for each floor of your house. You should also come up with an evacutation plan for your family. Your family is worth it!!!!!
