Ready for even brighter eveningd ahead after school? Well, that should be the scenario when the kids head back to school on Tuesday, as Daylight Saving Time kicks off across the United States at 2 a.m. Sunday, March 8.
The fire chiefs from St. Michael and Albertville fire departments remind everyone that when it’s time to change those clocks, it’s also a great time to check the batteries in your smoke detectors.
Smoke detectors and carbon monoxide detectors need fresh batteries at least once per year, and the perfect time to remember to see if those batteries are still working is when you’ve been shuffling around the house, changing all those clocks you forgot you had.
Remember – smoke detectors and CO detectors save lives!
