All batteries other than the 10- year life type should be replaced every year. Do not let fire destroy what is most important in your life! Practice fire safety year round! If you have questions about smoke alarms or need help getting new ones, consider visiting www.redcross.org/local/indiana/home-fire-safety or call the Westfield Fire Department at 317-804-3300.
