Check smoke detectors as we fall back

The time change takes place early on Sunday, November 1st, this year. The switch from Daylight Savings Time to Central Standard Time leads to an extra hour of sleep and an early sunset. It is also traditionally the weekend to check your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors to ensure they are functioning correctly. Fire Chief Justin MacDonald says the Ephraim Department suggests residents do it more frequently than that.

 


He says monthly inspections can be difficult for those with mobility issues, but that should not be a deterrent. Ephraim Fire and other Door County departments are happy to provide the service for those who can't do it themselves.
