BE ALARMED: CHANGE YOUR SMOKE ALARM BATTERY
WHEN YOU CHANGE YOUR CLOCK

Kyneton Brigade is offering home-owners around the town the ability to call the fire brigade and organise to change your smoke alarm battery if you, a relative or friend are unable to change the battery.
In line with the end of Daylight Saving, Victorians should pencil in Sunday April 5 as the day to change both their clocks and their smoke alarm batteries.
“To ensure their family and home is protected, we are encouraging all Victorians to use the end of Daylight Saving to not only change their clocks back, but also to replace the smoke alarm batteries in their homes. We recommend long-lasting alkaline batteries, such as Duracell,” said CFA Captain Brett Magrath
“We also urge people to help elderly relatives and neighbours who may not be capable of changing their smoke alarm batteries themselves or to contact us to help.”
If you would like to arrange for us to change the smoke alarm battery in your household or someone else's household where you or they are unable to change it, the CFA Kyneton Frire Brigade Duty Officer can be contacted on 5422 1241 and we will organise a time that suits you.
