Change Your Clocks, Alarms

Regional | by Jon Meyer  

Daylight Saving Time starts Sunday, and check your fire and carbon monoxide alarms.

Daylight saving time starts Sunday and goes until November 6th.

Clocks are officially turned ahead one hour at 2 AM Sunday.

So we lose an hour of sleep.

Springing forward is always a good time to make sure that smoke detector you rely on is working properly.

Fire Officials also recommend when you change your clocks you double check to see if your Carbon Monoxide detectors are working too.

Not a bad idea to change the batteries outright.

It's a simple message safety officials are getting out, "change your clock, change your batteries."

The #1 cause of unintentional poisoning deaths in North America is from Carbon Monoxide.

In Canada, there are approximately one thousand reported poisonings and 250 deaths per year due to carbon monoxide.
