It's time once again to turn clocks back one hour.|
Daylight Saving Time ends at 2 a.m. Sunday, October 29.
Over the years fire departments have encouraged people to change the batteries in smoke detectors when they change their clocks, twice a year.
It's a good habit to practice.
Working smoke detectors more than double the chances of surviving a fire, but only if batteries are fresh and working properly.
DAYLIGHT SAVINGS WILL EXTEND IN 2007
On August 8, 2005, President George W. Bush signed the Energy Policy Act of 2005. This Act changed the time change dates for Daylight Saving Time in the U.S. Beginning in 2007, DST will begin on the second Sunday of March and end the first Sunday of November.
The Secretary of Energy will report the impact of this change to Congress. Congress retains the right to revert the Daylight Saving Time back to the 2005 time schedule once the Department of Energy study is complete.
