We're less than a week away from gaining a much needed extra hour of sleep (and daylight) as we set the clocks to 'fall back'.

This SundayNovember 3rd, 2019 at 2:00 am, it will be time to set those clocks back an hour. This is also an excellent time to check things in the home, like smoke detectors (and not just the batteries, often the entire unit needs to be replaced), fire extinguishers and even replacing light bulbs.

Also, this is a great time to review or in some cases, create, a family emergency plan. Good items to have on it are:

  • Emergency Contact Information
  • Emergency Numbers (Fire, Police, Ambulance, Family Doctor)
  • First Aid Kit Locations
  • Where To Meet In The Event of An Emergency
  • Plans For Pets

Daylight Saving Time will resume on Sunday, March 8th, 2020 at 2:00 am. If you have trouble remembering which way the clocks go (forward or back), always remember "spring forward" and "fall back".
