This weekend it is time to “Spring Forward”, which means Sunday morning at 2:00am we once again enter into Daylight Savings Time. Everyone is to set their clocks ahead 1 hour either at 2:00am or before they go to bed Saturday night. The Kansas State Fire Marshall, and all local fire chiefs, say that this is also a good time to change the batteries in all home smoke detectors. Smoke detectors are proven life savers. Not only should the batteries be changed twice a year, but they should also be tested regularly It is also recommended that if your smoke detector is over 10 years old, that it should probably be replaced.
