It's time to fall back! Don't forget to change your clocks tonight

It's time to fall back! Don't forget to change your clocks tonight

When clocks reach 2:00 a.m. on Sunday morning, they will be turned back to 1:00 a.m., giving Montrealers an extra hour of sleep. That means pushing your clocks back one hour before going to bed Saturday night.

According to Lieutenant Dan Janecek with the Rapid City Fire department, daylight saving time is an important time of the year to check on potentially life saving appliances.

However, fire officials also said it is a good idea to check your smoke detectors even more than the recommended twice per year.

Clocks will fall back tonight at 2am. For more information on a smoke alarm, CO detector or battery, please call Rowlett Fire Administration at 972-412-6230.

"We cannot stress enough the importance of having working alarms - early detection is key - you may have less than two minutes to escape safely", said fire public education Whitney Burk.

For the best protection, interconnect all alarms so that when one sounds, they all sound.

Never take smoke alarm batteries out to put into other items like games or remote controls.

All too often, a battery is removed and not replaced, putting a home's occupants at risk.

The organization recommends testing all smoke alarms in a residence and replacing batteries where needed. Test alarms at least once a month and replace all smoke alarms when they're 10 years old.

It's the law to have working smoke alarms on every level of your home and outside all sleeping areas.
