  • Daylight saving time coming to an end this weekend

Technically, Daylight Saving Time ends at 2 a.m. on Sunday, Nov. 5 - not on Saturday, Nov. 4. IAFF Local 574 firefighters remind you to not only change your clocks for Daylight Saving Time but the check your smoke alarms, too.

"Replacing the batteries in your alarms is simple and relatively affordable", said Fire Department Division Chief Jason Shivers.

Fire officials say it's time to change the batteries on those smoke detectors and carbon monoxide alarms.

"It's irrefutable that smoke and carbon monoxide alarms save lives every day", said Fire Chief Danny Bowman.

Remember if you rent it is your landlord's responsibility to provide working alarms, but it is your responsibility to ensure those alarms have working batteries. This reduces the chance of alarms chirping to indicate low batteries. Test alarms at least once a month and replace all smoke alarms when they're 10 years old.
