CHEYENNE, Wyo - In our monthly series with Cheyenne Fire and Rescue Byron Matthews stopped by to talk about why changing your smoke detector batteries are important.
Even though batteries have an expiration date on them, it's suggested you change the batteries twice a year. To remember to do so, always change them when daylight savings comes. You also want to change your carbon monoxide detectors as well.
You should have a fire detector in every room of your house and out side the doors of every bedroom. You want to make sure you test your smoke detector sporadically to know it works.
For more information on smoke detectors, testing them, and some basic fire prevention safety check out the interview from the morning show.
