Change Your Clock and Smoke Alarm Batteries Nov. 2

By providing an early warning and critical extra seconds to escape, working smoke alarms cut the risk of dying in reported home fire structures in half. So when you set your clocks back on November 2, use the extra hour to make a life-saving change in your household—change and test the batteries in your smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors—and remind your friends, family and neighbors to do the same. This simple act takes just a moment, but is the best defense your family has against the devastating effects of a home fire. Should you have any questions regarding your alarms please contact us at or 253-288-5800.

Enterovirus D68 Confirmed in King County

Enterovirus D68 has been confirmed in King County and is likely circulating, much like a common cold. And like common cold viruses, it will cause runny noses, coughing, and sometimes fever. It can become more severe for children with underlying health conditions. Parents should be watchful for any signs of wheezing or worsening asthma and seek medical help promptly if breathing difficulty occurs. There is no vaccine, but you can reduce your chance of getting sick by washing your hands frequently and avoiding sick people.  Read more at
