Fgvm2jaXEAQSanYOAKBROOK TERRACE – With daylight saving time coming to an end this weekend, State Senator Suzy Glowiak Hilton is reminding households to also check and change their smoke detector batteries as needed.

“It’s time to fall back, and daylight saving also serves as an important reminder to make sure your smoke detectors are working,” said Senator Glowiak Hilton (D-Western Springs). “This is a helpful habit to ensure your household is safe.”

If you find an alarm that is not working or is expired, replace the alarm immediately with a new 10-year sealed battery alarm. It’s also a great time to review your family’s fire escape plan.

Between the years 2014-2018, the National Fire Protection Association reported that almost three out of every five home fire deaths in the U.S. resulted from fires in homes with no smoke alarms or non-working smoke alarms. The chances of dying in a home fire was reduced by 55% in homes where working smoke alarms are present.

“Working smoke alarms are one of the best and least expensive means of providing an early warning of a potentially deadly fire in your home,” said Senator Glowiak Hilton. “Maintaining the alarm is a simple way to help keep your family members and pets safe from harm.”

Breast cancer affects more than 250,000 women and 2,400 men in the United States every year. But unfortunately, the National Cancer Institute reported an estimated 9.4 million screenings that normally would have taken place in 2020 did not occur due to the pandemic.

“The U.S. relies on microchip imports to fulfill local manufacturing needs,” said Glowiak Hilton, chair of the Senate Commerce Committee. “In response to the national semiconductor supply chain shortage, we can use this opportunity to serve local production, build the industry in Illinois and create job opportunities for residents.”

Nationally, the semiconductor supply chain has been fragile for years and has hindered manufacturing across the United States. For added economic security, Glowiak Hilton’s measure incentivizes bringing chip manufacturing back to local production.
