Remember to turn your clocks back one hour Saturday night. Daylight Saving Time officially ends at 2 a.m. on Sunday, Nov. 1.
“We also remind citizens to replace the batteries in all smoke and carbon monoxide detectors this weekend. We want everyone to stay safe,” said Dale Lane, Director of the Shelby County Office of Preparedness.
Here are tips about the placement of smoke detectors:
1. Install a smoke detector outside of each sleeping area, one on each floor of the home and one in the basement.
2. If your smoke detector is 10 years old, replace it with a new one.
3. Push the “Test” button and listen for the high-pitched beeping sound.
4. If you cannot afford a smoke detector, please go by your nearest fire station to apply for one.
