With this important safety tip from the North Point Edgemere Volunteer Fire Co., Dundalk Patch kicks off a new feature called "Sign of the Times."
This space will feature a local organization's sign with news of an event, accomplishment, important notice or other helpful information.
In this first Sign of the Times, local volunteer firefighters use a simple, to-the-point message to remind us it's time to check the batteries in our smoke detectors.
If you don't have one, get one; if you've had your current device 10 years or longer, or you've had it beyond the manufacturer's recommended life cycle, replace it.
Does your organization have a sign with an important message? Snap a picture and send it to email@example.com.
