spring forwardMIDDLETOWN, NJ - It’s that time of year when we need to set our clocks ahead an hour. The Middletown Township Fire Department recommends using Daylight Savings Time as a reminder to check the batteries in your smoke detectors. Smoke detectors can save lives, but only if they work.


Take time this weekend to adjust the microwave clock, the oven clock, the old grandfather clock and to check the batteries in all of your smoke detectors. Press the test button to ensure all Smoke and CO detectors are working!

Please review your emergency action plan with your loved ones.

Have a safe and enjoyable weekend!
