Daylight Saving Time Reminder

Daylight Saving Time

It's that time of year again to fall back an hour!

Daylight saving time officially ends at 2:00 a.m. on Sunday.  But to make it easy, it's recommended you turn your clocks back one hour before going to bed on Saturday night.  It's also a good time to change the batteries in your carbon monoxide and fire detectors.  According to the National Fire Protection Association, four of every 10 home fires deaths in 2003-2006 resulted from fires with no smoke alarms.  More than 90 percent of homes in the United States have smoke detectors, but one-third are estimated to have dead or missing batteries.

I hope everyone had a fun and safe Halloween.
