Fall Back 2014 Is This Weekend
It’s Daylight Saving Time! The original purpose of Daylight Saving Time was to make better use of daylight and to conserve energy. Each year we fall back in the Fall and spring forward in the Spring! Before you go to bed Saturday night, November 1st, move all your clocks back one hour.
In addition to changing the clocks, there are other life saving tasks that homeowners should perform this weekend as well. Check and change the batteries of your smoke and carbon monoxide alarms.
According to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) 3 out of 5 fire deaths happen in homes without smoke detectors or the detectors were not working. Smoke detectors should be on each level of your home and inside the bedrooms.
Carbon monoxide is known as the silent killer. You cannot see or smell this poisonous gas. The US Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) reported that from 2008 to 2010 162 deaths occurred from items such as portable generators and home heating systems.
So, set all of your clocks back one hour when you go to bed Saturday night and make the time this weekend to check your smoke and carbon monoxide alarms. The few minutes it takes can be the difference between life and death.
