Move Your Clock Back This Weekend

This Sunday, at 2 a.m., time will revert back to standard time, giving you an extra hour to sleep in. You can thank Ben Franklin for all this. He was the first one to suggest daylight saving time back in 1784 but it wasn’t until 1966 that the twice yearly clock change became the law of the land.

“Change your clock, change your battery”.

Daylight savings is also a good reminder for people to check smoke alarms in their residences to ensure they’re working properly.

The International Fire Chiefs Association and Energize want you to adopt a new habit; changing your smoke alarm batteries every November when you set your clocks back for to standard Time.
