Daylight Savings Time Begins Sunday

Fire Departments across the country like Gibraltar are hoping you check your smoke detectors when you change your clocks this weekend. Daylight Savings Time begins officially on Sunday at 2 a.m. when clocks are supposed to be moved ahead one hour. Gibraltar Fire Chief Andy Bertges hopes the semiannual routine helps save lives by serving as a reminder for people to check the batteries in their smoke detectors.

The change in clocks can also be a good reminder for homeowners to restock their emergency kit and check their furnace and water heater.
