Reset your clocks before falling asleep tonight

SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – Don’t forget to change your clocks! Daylight savings time officially ends 2 a.m. Sunday, marking the start of Pacific Standard Time, which lasts until March 13, 2016. 

The International Association of Fire Chiefs also recommends that people use the semi-annual clock-changing exercise to replace batteries for smoke and carbon monoxide detectors, as well as emergency flashlights. The battery-changing ritual should include checking that the device has not passed an expiration date, and clearing dust from slots or sensors.

According to the National Fire Protection Association, nearly 3,000 people die in residential fires throughout the U.S. each year, and smoke alarms cut the risk of fatality in a house fire by one-half.

Trick-or-treaters can enjoy Halloween with an extra hour of fun!

Happy Halloween!
