Set your clocks back an hour Saturday night, check your smoke alarms

LIMA — Daylight savings time will come to an end at 2 a.m. on Sunday. The State Fire Marshal, Kevin Reardon, has sent a reminder to Ohioans to not only set their clocks back an hour but check their smoke and carbon monoxide alarms.

“We see the life-saving impact properly functioning smoke alarms can have when the worst happens,” Reardon said in a recent press release. “Working smoke alarms save lives, cutting your risk of dying in a house fire in half.”

Reardon also encouraged families to create a fire safety plan and have carbon monoxide detectors on every level of their homes.
