Check smoke alarms Sunday during Daylight Saving Time

With Daylight Saving Time coming up this weekend, the Office of the Illinois State Fire Marshal reminds residents that it's the best time to test and replace the batteries in their home smoke alarms.

  Smoke detectors can only  protect you and your family  if they are in good condition  with working batteries. 

Clocks must be adjusted one hour earlier at 2 a.m. Sunday, when Central Standard Time resumes.“The time change serves as a great reminder to test your smoke alarms and change the batteries in them,” said Illinois Fire . . .
