Set The Clocks Ahead And What Else You Should Do For Daylight Saving Time This Weekend

Spring ahead this Sunday as Daylight Saving Time begins.  In addition to setting your clocks ahead one hour before you go to sleep Saturday night, what else should you do?

This is a good time to check smoke detectors and make sure they’re working properly.  According to The Fireman’s Association of New York, when there’s a fire in a home and the smoke detector doesn’t go off, it’s usually because it’s been disconnected, missing or the batteries are dead.

As you’re setting your clocks ahead one hour for Daylight Saving Time, check your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors.  Test them to make sure they’re working properly and change the batteries too.

It’s best to check the batteries twice a year and change the batteries once a year.

Wipe or vacuum any dust away on detectors.

Remember, smoke detectors shouldn’t be placed near windows and you should have on on every floor of your home, including your basement and near sleeping areas.

Spring ahead and stay safe.
