Replace smoke detector batteries
Fremont County Fire Protection District chief Craig Haslam is reminding the community to replace batteries in smoke and carbon monoxide detectors in their homes.
"Change your batteries this weekend with daylight savings time," Haslam said, recommending checking monitors with the time change.
"It should be done minimally once a year. I like to tell people to do it twice a year, that way they don't forget if they did it last time," he said.
If anyone needs a smoke detector, don't worry. "If people don't have smoke detectors, we have those available. We also have batteries if they need them," Haslam said.
The Fremont County Fire Protection District offices are located at 305 S. Smith Road in Riverton.
