Change Your Clock, Change Your Batteries

Check Batteries in the Smoke alarm

The Office of Fire Prevention encourages everyone to change your battery in your smoke alarm.

"Change your clock, change your smoke alarm battery" is an annual fire safety campaign promoting the importance of working smoke alarms. Smoke alarms provide a vital early warning signal in the event of a fire.

People don't realize that when they are asleep they can't smell smoke. That's why smoke alarms are essential to ensure people sleeping in a house wake up and evacuate if a fire breaks out.

A good time to remember to check your smoke alarm and change the batteries is when you change your clocks twice a year as Daylight Savings Time begins and ends.

Prepare and practice an escape plan! Crawl low under smoke. Plan where to meet outside. Once you're out, stay out! Remember, smoke alarms save lives.

Killers of the Flower Moon: The Osage Murders and the Birth of the FBI

by David Grann

4.09 · Rating details · 164,101 ratings · 17,826 reviews

In the 1920s, the richest people per capita in the world were members of the Osage Indian Nation in Oklahoma. After oil was discovered beneath their land, the Osage rode in chauffeured automobiles, built mansions, and sent their children to study in Europe.

Then, one by one, they began to be killed off. One Osage woman, Mollie Burkhart, watched as her family was murdered. Her older sister was shot. Her mother was then slowly poisoned. And it was just the beginning, as more Osage began to die under mysterious circumstances.

In this last remnant of the Wild West—where oilmen like J. P. Getty made their fortunes and where desperadoes such as Al Spencer, “the Phantom Terror,” roamed – virtually anyone who dared to investigate the killings were themselves murdered. As the death toll surpassed more than twenty-four Osage, the newly created F.B.I. took up the case, in what became one of the organization’s first major homicide investigations. But the bureau was then notoriously corrupt and initially bungled the case. Eventually the young director, J. Edgar Hoover, turned to a former Texas Ranger named Tom White to try to unravel the mystery. White put together an undercover team, including one of the only Native American agents in the bureau. They infiltrated the region, struggling to adopt the latest modern techniques of detection. Together with the Osage they began to expose one of the most sinister conspiracies in American history.
