“Change Your Clock - Change Your Battery”

Communications Team | (316) 268-4351

New hours for Keeper’s ‘Ring of Fire’

Wichita Fire Department officials are reminding residents to change batteries in smoke alarms when they adjust clocks for daylight saving time on Sunday.

A working smoke alarm provides an early warning for residents needing to escape a fire. The fire department also recommends the use of quality batteries to help ensure your smoke alarm is operational. For more information, please call the Fire Prevention Office at 268-4441.

Relatedly, beginning Sunday, the Keeper of the Plains’ Ring of Fire schedule will change to 9 p.m. nightly. The Ring of Fire feature burns for 15 minutes, weather permitting. The feature is not possible when wind or high river levels are present.
