Change Your Clocks & Batteries

Daylight Savings ends on Sunday, November 5th. Don't forget to turn your clocks back one hour before bed on Saturday, November 4th.

As the date approaches, the Gurnee Fire Department would like to remind all residents to change the batteries in their smoke detectors when they turn their clocks ahead. Fresh batteries are critical to ensuring your smoke detectors will work if a fire breaks out. Additionally, smoke detectors need to be replaced every 10 years, and carbon monoxide detectors need to be replaced every 5 years. These small and easy steps can mean the difference between life and death.
