Time to change your Smoke Alarm Batteries

As a reminder this Sunday March 13th at 2am begins Day Light Savings Time. The National Fire Protection Association’s safety message to the community is that when we change our clocks, we change our smoke alarm batteries. Buchanan Valley FD is very committed to ensuring that each of our residents have at least 1 working smoke alarm/detector. Some of you may recall that BVFD has been handing out smoke alarms to our 1st due residents for over 10 years, as well as batteries each year during fire prevention week. If you live in our 1st due response area and cannot afford a new battery (for the smoke alarm), or you are having trouble changing your smoke alarm battery please do not hesitate to contact us at the firehouse (717) 677-9234. We will gladly assist you !
