This week’s safety message is: This Saturday March 10th is Daylight Saving. The fire service has used this biannual event to remind you to change the batteries in your smoke detectors and CO detectors. While you have them down to change the batteries we would also like you to check the manufacture/expiration date. The effective life span of a detector is 10 years. After that time the detectors begin to lose some of their effectiveness. Although a detector older than 10 years is better than no detector at all we urge you to replace them as soon as possible. We would also like to remind you that detectors should be checked once a month.
The Clayton Fire Department exists to help prepare our community for emergencies, support people when overwhelmed, and care for them in their time of need. We want to provide a safe environment for our citizens and guests to enjoy our community and all it has to offer.
If you have any further questions about the Clayton Fire Department or programs that we offer, please feel free to contact Fire Captain/Public Information Officer Ryan Harrell at (314)290-8485 or RHarrell@ClaytonMo.gov
