Column: All working smoke detectors help save lives


Finally, this year, on Nov. 4, Daylight Savings Time will end, and we will all change our clocks back one hour. Once again, I, along with other area fire chiefs, remind everyone that when you change your clock, please remember to also change the batteries in your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors. Also, take this opportunity to check the age and type of your detectors. If they are 10 or more years old, or if they are not the correct type, please replace them.

For more information about fire safety, call your local department, or check the City of Methuen website and go to the Fire Department link.

Remember, smoke and carbon monoxide detectors do save lives!

Steven R. Buote is chief of the Methuen Fire Department.
