It’s time change weekend. We’ll all set our clocks back one hour Sunday morning. Firefighters always remind us to take this time to change the batteries in your smoke detectors and carbon monoxide detectors. Osage Beach Fire Marshal Ed Nicholson says it’s also a good idea to have a professional check your furnaces for safety before turning them on, especially if it’s gas fired.
Nicholson says this is also a good time to refresh your home and vehicle safety kits for the winter, and for families to develop and practice an escape plan in the event of a house fire.
