Protect yourself from fire
Daylight Saving Time starts on the first Sunday of March and ends on the first Sunday in November. This year, we will move our clocks forward on March 11th. 

In 1784, Benjamin Franklin realized people burned candles at night yet slept past dawn in the summer, wasting early-morning sunlight.

Daylight Saving Time was first used in World War I to conserve fuel. In theory, using daylight more efficiently saves fuel and energy by reducing the need for artificial light.

When the clocks are changed is a good time to change batteries in wireless devices (smoke detectors, wireless door and window contacts, and CO2 detectors). 

38% of fatal fire injuries occur in homes without working smoke alarms and 24% occur in homes with at least one smoke detector that fails to operate.

After you’ve changed all your batteries, be sure to take the old batteries to a recycle depot near you.
