When changing your clock an hour forward remember to check the batteries on your smoke alarms.
Roughly 3 out of 5 fire deaths happen in homes with no smoke alarms or the alarms are not working. Working smoke alarms give you early warning so you can get outside quickly when there is a fire.
Change your clock, change your smoke alarm batteries!
