Change Smoke Alarm Batteries

The Olathe Fire Department, along with the Fire Education Association of Kansas and Fire Marshals Association of Kansas, urges residents to change their smoke alarm batteries at least once a year to save lives and prevent injuries.

They suggest that people adopt a simple, lifesaving habit of changing smoke alarm batteries when they adjust their clocks to standard time this weekend.

For assistance changing batteries, check with your local fire department or call the American Red Cross Smoke Alarm Hotline at 816-841-5242.
