How Many Women Does it Take to Change the Battery in the Smoke Detector? [VIDEO]

I had a funny conversation with a co-worker/friend at work this morning and she was talking about how she changed the battery all by herself. At first she thought that I was joking with her, but I was proud.

Smoke Detector, Changing the Battery

It isn’t always an easy task changing the batteries in the smoke detector, I always seem to have a problem with the rubic cube nature of turning the cover a certain way to get it to release. And working on a ladder with your arms above your head is not the right time to have to figure out a puzzle. So, maybe this will help…

If you have to change your batteries and have a hard time of it because it is up on a high vaulted ceiling, you’re elderly or disabled there is another way to change the batteries and be safe.

I had a chance to exchange some insightful emails with Captain Patrick Love with the Poudre Fire Authority and he told me…

Poudre Fire Authority has a FREE program for residents to take care of these issues.  We will come out and replace, or give new, a smoke alarm, carbon monoxide alarm or battery(ies) if they cannot physically do it for themselves.  They can find us on our website, Facebook, YouTube or Twitter.

The thing’s you learn when you start talking… no one knows everything and when we open our mouths and share seemingly silly stories,  look at the types of things we can find. Thank you, Capt. Patrick Love and your crew.
