Before you go to sleep tonight, keep in mind to turn back all your clocks as daylight saving time officially comes to an end. Changing alarm batteries at the beginning and end of Daylight Saving Time is a handy way to remember.

St. Lawrence County residents are set to turn their clocks back tonight, and the Firemen's Association of NY is urging people to check their smoke alarm batteries.

Daylight Savings Time ends at 2 a.m. Sunday. The St. Louis Fire Department urges people to change their smoke detector batteries twice a year.

Covey also recommends residents look into getting combined smoke and carbon monoxide alarm systems, as well as a fire extinguisher in their homes.


Batteries in your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors should be changed twice a year and a good way to do not forget to do this is to change the battery when you change the clock.

If you don't have a smoke alarm, you can apply for a free one! When the smoke detector first sounded, not enough smoke even existed for them to see the fire in their toaster oven. Ensure that the alarms are interconnected.

Alarms should never be disconnected and batteries should never be removed. The American Red Cross reminds residents to take a few minutes to push the test button to make sure all of the alarms in your home are working.

Each of these reasons is easily remedied by either simply replacing the battery or the device.
