Time Changes This Weekend

Daylight Savings Time ends Sunday, November 3, at 2:00 a.m. Remember to set your clocks back one hour before going to bed Saturday night. With the time change right around the corner, it is important to change the batteries in your smoke detectors when you change your clocks. On average, families have less than three minutes from the time the first smoke alarm sounds to escape a fire. Working smoke alarms provide the early warning and critical extra seconds needed to escape and cut the risk of dying in home fire structures in half. When you set your clock back on November 3, use the extra hour to make a life-saving change in your household, change and test the batteries in your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors, and remind your friends, family and neighbors to do the same. This simple act takes just a moment, but it is the best defense your family has against the devastating effects of a home fire. This reminder to ‘Change Your Clock Change Your Battery’ comes from The Vienna Times and your local fire departments.
