According to the National Fire Protection Association, 16% of all fire-related deaths are attributed to non-working smoke detectors, 81% of which were the direct result of missing, disconnected, or dead batteries.  The CDC estimates that approximately 430 Americans die each year as a result of carbon monoxide poisoning.

Whether you are celebrating the additional daylight hours or grumbling about the lost hour of sleep, make sure to check those batteries.
