Fall Back! Daylight Saving Time ENDS Sunday Morning

Fall Back…  Daylight Saving Time ends Sunday morning.  At 2:00 Sunday morning, our clocks should be set back one hour.  Of course, most people will reset their clocks before going to bed Saturday night.  The good news is that will give you an extra hour of sleep.

Assistant Chillicothe Fire Chief Eric Reeter says the changing of the clocks is also a great time to take care of some home safety items.  Reeter says check your smoke detectors.

Even if your detectors are hard wired, it is still a good time to check them.  He says this is also a good time to review your fire safety plan.

Reeter says in addition to testing and replacing batteries, do a little light cleaning to remove dust and check the expiration date.  If the smoke detector is beyond the expiration, make plans to replace it as soon as possible.

Now remember, Saturday before you go to bed, FALL BACK… set the clocks back one hour and change the batteries in the smoke detectors at the same time.
