DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – Sunday, March 8. What is it about that day? Can’t quite place it. Oh, yes. It is the time to ‘spring forward’.
Daylight saving time begins, so the annual ritual of setting your clocks forward one hour is this weekend.
It is also the perfect time to change the batteries in your smoke detectors and replace them if they are more than 10 years old.
“We’re still finding that many homes in Ohio don’t have working smoke alarms,” said State Fire Marshal Larry Flowers. “Many times, fatal fires could have been prevented with the help of the early warning a smoke alarm provides. It gives people time to escape.”
Daylight saving time begins at 2:00 a.m. Sunday.
