Daylight Saving Time ends this Sunday at 2:00am. Don't forget to turn BACK your clocks 1 hour before going to bed this Saturday.
Daylight Saving Time will begin again on March 12, 2023.
It's a good time to get your semi-annual tasks done. Think about doing these things when you reset your clocks:
- Check and replace the batteries in your smoke and carbon monoxide (CO) alarms. Replace any smoke alarms older than ten years. Replace any CO alarms older than five years.
- Prepare a disaster supply kit for your house (water, food, flashlights, batteries, blankets, important documents). Once you've created your home disaster kit, use the semi-annual time change to check its contents (including testing/replacing flashlight batteries and adding new important documents).
- Check home and outbuilding storage areas for hazardous materials. Properly discard any materials which are outdated, no longer used, or in poor condition. Move any materials which are within reach of kids or pets.
- Check and discard expired medications. Some very common over-the-counter medications can cause serious problems due to change through aging. Find out Where and How to Dispose of Unused Medications.
