Having a working smoke detector gives you the best odds to survive a fire should one occur in your home. Missouri State Fire Marshall, Tim Bean, says it’s also a good time to make sure that your family has a fire escape plan…………

Bean says it’s critical to have a working smoke detector in every bedroom, and on every floor of your home……….

Bean says it’s also a good idea to have working carbon monoxide detectors in your home if you use fossil fuels for heating or cooking. Daylight Saving Time will begin at 2 a.m. Sunday. Remember to set your clock ahead one hour.
