Daylight Savings Time occurs this Sunday, November 1. After you change the time on your clocks, you should also check the batteries in your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors.
The CDC recommends that you check or replace carbon monoxide batteries twice a year when you change the time on your clocks each spring and fall. Replace smoke alarm alkaline batteries at least once a year. Test alarms every month to ensure they work properly.
