Daylights Saving Not Just for Changing Clocks

Posted: Updated:

It's that time of year again - Daylight Saving Time is once again upon us.

At 2 a.m. Sunday, the clocks will 'spring forward' an hour.

And while some of us may begrudge the hour less of sleep, fire officials across the country say this is a good opportunity.

They're urging everyone to take the time to replace the batteries in their smoke detectors.

The potentially life saving move should be done twice a year - so Daylight Saving Time is a good reminder.

One more reminder: you probably want to set your clock ahead when you go to bed Saturday if you want to wake up 'on time' in the morning.
