Turn back your clock one hour at bedtime Saturday night as Daylight Savings Time ends at 2 a.m. on Sunday, Nov. 3.
On average, families have less than three minutes from the time the first smoke alarm sounds to escape a fire.
Working smoke alarms provide the early warning and critical extra seconds needed to escape and cut the risk of dying in home fire structures in half.
When you set your clock back on Nov. 3, use the extra hour to make a life-saving change in your household change and test the batteries in your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors and remind your friends, family and neighbors to do the same.
This simple act takes just a moment, but it is the best defense your family has against the devastating effects of a home fire.
This reminder to Change Your Clock Change Your Battery comes from Energizer, your local fire department and the International Association of Fire Chiefs.
