Haney advises families to replace outdated smoke alarms, if possible, with newer models that feature 10-year sealed lithium batteries.

Functional smoke alarms cut the risk of dying in a home fire in half, Trego says. If the alarm chirps, a warning that the battery is low, replace the entire smoke alarm right away.

But fire departments across the country are once again reminding everyone to check your smoke detectors and change the device's batteries.

You should check them every month to make sure the batteries are good and you should change the batteries every 6 months. In addition, 45 percent of smoke alarm failures during that period were due to missing or dead batteries in the device. Replace the backup battery every year.

When a smoke alarm sounds, get outside and stay outside.

22News Storm Team Meteorologist Nick Bannin said Daylight saving time allows us to have longer evenings of light.

NEVER borrow a battery from an alarm to use somewhere else. The instructions are included in the package or can be found on the internet.

Use this as a reminder to push the test button on the alarm. "If it doesn't have a date on it, it's over 10-years-old". Then practice the plan at least two times a year.

Residents in Danbury can schedule a visit by visiting www.soundthealarm.org/Connecticut or by calling 877-287-3327 and choosing option 1 on the menu to request a smoke alarm installation.
