Set Your Clocks Forward and Check Your Smoke Alarms

Daylight Saving Time begins Sunday, March 13 at 2 a.m. Set your clocks forward, and take the time to change the batteries in your smoke alarms. Smoke alarms have a lifespan of 10 years. So check the date on your alarms, and replace them if they are getting close or are over ten years old. Smoke alarms save lives, but only if they work!
