Change your clocks, check your smoke alarms
SPOKANE, Wash. — At 2:00 a.m. Sunday, it will become 3:00 a.m., because it’s time to spring forward. It happens twice a year. Daylight Saving Time rolls around, and you have to change your clocks.
But, there’s something else you should do. Each time the clocks change, The American Red Cross runs a ‘Turn and Test’ campaign hoping to remind people to test their alarms each time they turn their clocks.
Does your home have enough? Do they all have working batteries?
This graphic, tweeted by Spokane firefighters from District 8, explains that it’s important to have one in every room/sleeping area, and at the top of every stairway. And they don’t do any good if they’re not working. So make sure to test them!
