Union Proposition Fire


The Union Fire Protection District reminds residents that one simple step can help save their lives and the lives of those around them.

Everyone is encouraged to use the extra hour they “gain” from daylight-saving time to change the batteries in their own smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors, test the alarms and remind friends, family, and neighbors to do the same.

The Change Your Clock Change Your Battery program, sponsored by Energizer and the International Association of Fire Chiefs reminds people to change and test the batteries in smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors as daylight savings time ends on Sunday November 3rd.

The Union community has been witness to tragic home fire deaths and with everyone working together people can help reduce the number of home fire fatalities. Nonworking smoke alarms rob residents of the protective benefits home fire safety devices were designed to provide.

The most commonly cited cause of nonworking smoke alarms is worn or missing batteries. Eighty percent of child fire fatalities occur in homes without working smoke alarms. It’s a statistic that could be reduced by adopting the simple habit of the Change Your Clock Change Your Battery program.

The peak time for home fire fatalities is between 11 p.m. and 7 a.m. when most families are sleeping. Smoke alarm maintenance is a simple, effective way to reduce home fire deaths. Children and senior citizens are most at risk, and a working smoke alarm can provide the extra seconds needed to get out safely.

For more information about fire safety people may call the Union Fire Protection District at636-583-2515.

Thank you,
