TURN and TEST
Well, I have just finished my morning
scramble. Advancing all the clocks and timers.
As you TURN your clocks forward one hour, please remember to TEST your smoke alarms.
☑️Check smoke alarms and replace batteries if needed.
☑️Create and practice your home fire escape plan.
I know you are still spry, but I have slowed down a bit, and it is good to remember that with all these plastics and new building materials you only have 2 minutes to escape your home safely.
We should all be proud of the roll that Ron N5SBN (EC Brazos County) and Jerry KG5YSD helping the family of 7 including 3 children whose lives were saved by the home fire campaign.
If you need a free alarm, or want to help:
West, Central and South Texas
Home Fire Campaign: https://www.redcross.org/local/texas/central-and-south-texas/about-us/our-work/home-fire-campaign.html
In Texas Gulf coast that is: https://www.redcross.org/local/texas/gulf-coast/about-us/our-work/home-fire-campaign.html
IF your alarms are beeping, they may have expired. They are
generally only good for 10 years.
Hard of hearing, check out the bed shaker alarms.
