[ARCHIVED] - Daylight Saving Time: Change Your Clock, Change Your Battery -
Get ready to set those clocks back an hour.
As you prepare to fall back with the end of daylight saving time officially at 2 a.m. November 4, 2018, remember to change the battery in your smoke detector. Changing the batteries in your smoke alarm the same time you change your clocks is an easy way to remember and make sure they are operating effectively.
A smoke alarm, when properly maintained and installed, is the only thing in your home that can alert you and your family to a fire 24/7/365.
A working smoke alarm is constantly on alert, scanning the air for fire and smoke. Install smoke alarms on every level of your home, including the basement.
