You may lose an hour of sleep and an hour of your weekend…but you gain
a little more sunlight!
It’s happening this weekend as we will spring our clocks FORWARD one
hour and say hello to daylight savings time! And when you change the
time on your clocks, firefighters remind you to change the batteries in
your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors…The safety devices have
proven time and time again that they do save lives…They are your first
line of defense in your home. It’s critical to test your smoke detectors
regularly and to replace the batteries in battery-operated units at
least once every six months as well as in battery-operated carbon
monoxide detectors. It is also very important to have your heating unit
serviced at least once a year along with your chimney. Safety experts
also recommend replacing any smoke detector that is more than 10 years old.
Daylight Savings Time begins at 2 a.m. on Sunday, March 11…
