Time to Turn the Clocks Back This Weekend

An extra hour of sleep will be added to your schedule this weekend as Daylight Savings Time comes to an end.

You are reminded to turn all your clocks back an hour Saturday night before heading to bed, as the change goes into effect at 2 a.m. Sunday morning.

The time adjustment will allow the sun to rise just before 7 a.m. and to set before 5 p.m.

Homeowners are also reminded to check carbon monoxide and smoke detectors in the home and to make sure they are in proper working order.

With the cold weather there is always the risk for carbon monoxide (CO) poisonings as heat sources are being turned on. Faulty or improperly installed furnaces can emit CO. Symptoms of CO poisoning include headaches, fatigue, dizziness, shortness of breath, nausea, and confusion. At high levels, CO can cause death within minutes. If you suspect CO poisoning or your detector sounds go immediately outside and call 911.
