When to change fuel filter?

Hi

I was told a fuel filter should be changed every 30K miles.
My problem I own a 97 escort with 178k miles on the counter and I don't know when the fuel filter was last changed.
Is there a way to find out? What shall I do if I don't know when it was last changed?
I am planning on doing it myself, it doesn't seem that hard.

Thanks a lot

Patrick
