UNDATE (KTRE) - Don't forget to set your clocks forward tonight for daylight saving time, which marks the start of longer days.
Daylight saving time was implemented as an energy-saving measure. It begins at 2 a.m. Sunday morning with clocks being moved one hour ahead.
Also, safety experts suggest you take this time to change the batteries in your smoke alarm.
- Make sure your detector runs on batteries and is not just hard-wired to the electricity in your home.
- Take the top off the detector and follow the manufacturer's instructions for changing the batteries.
- Replace the whole detector if it runs on a 10-year lithium battery.
- If your smoke detector starts chirping or beeping off and on, it's time to change the batteries.
- Replace all smoke detectors after 10 years.
Daylight saving time will end at 2 a.m. Nov. 7 when clocks are turned back one hour.
