Remember to “Fall Back” Saturday Night
Posted at 2:30 p.m.
Daylight Saving Time ends officially at 2 a.m. tomorrow (Sunday) morning, but most of us use bedtime tonight as the trigger to turn our clocks back one hour before going to bed.
Remember the old saying… “spring forward, fall back.” It’s a great way to remember which way to turn the clocks.
And our fire and rescue and emergency management staffs also encourage you to use Daylight Saving Time as a standard time twice each year to change the batteries in your smoke alarms and to refresh the supplies in your emergency supply kits in your home, car and office.
