Savings on Time AND Batteries

Friday, March 06, 2009

It’s that time of year when we spring forward… so don’t forget to set your clocks ahead an hour this Sunday when daylight saving time goes into effect.

And while you’re changing your clocks, the New York Fire Department wants to remind New Yorkers that it is also a good time to change the batteries in your smoke detectors.

Lieutenant Anthony Mancusso says smoke detectors are of no use if the batteries are dead.

From 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. the New York Fire Department will be giving our free batteries at the following locations:

Jamaica Centre Parsons/Archer subway station
Flushing-Main Street subway station Queens
85th Street and 18th Avenue, Brooklyn
Junction Complex- Jamaica Avenue/ Fulton Street, Brooklyn Staten Island Ferry-St. George, Staten Island West 168th Street Broadway subway station East 161st Street and River Avenue/Yankee Stadium subway station

Duracel has donated 50,000 nine volt batteries for the occasion.
