Daylight saving time starts at 2 a.m. Sunday

Good time to change batteries in smoke alarms, say fire personnel

Public safety officials are reminding residents to not only reset their clocks for daylight saving time, which begins at 2 a.m. Sunday, but to also check smoke alarms and other emergency equipment.

At 2 a.m. Sunday, daylight time begins in most of the U.S. and the clock moves forward one hour.

The time change ends on Nov. 2, when clocks go back one hour.

Fire departments are encouraging residents that while changing clocks on microwaves, ovens and other clocks around the home, people should change the batteries in smoke and carbon-monoxide detectors.
