Don't Forget to Set Your Clocks Back on Nov. 7 and Something Else....

Daylight Saving Time ends on Sunday, November 7, at 2 a.m. As we set our clocks back, take the time to also change the batteries in your smoke alarms. Check the date on your alarms to make sure they are not more than ten years old, and replace them if they are. Smoke alarms save lives, but only if they work!
