With Daylight Saving Time, the Red Cross and local fire departments recommend checking your smoke detectors.

It's recommended that you check your smoke detector's batteries twice a year -- and while you're making sure that your clocks are right before the time changes, the Red Cross encourages people to take some time to test their smoke detectors too.  The Bath Township Fire Department recommends that you should check your detectors regularly. 

"Our advice is to push that little red button at least once a month, make sure that works, and then check the batteries twice a year, and time change is a great time to remember to do that," said Fire Chief Joseph Kitchen.

The fire department also recommends that you should replace your smoke detectors every 10 years.
