Daylight Saving Time begins Sunday, March 8 at 2 a.m. local time. Before you go to bed on March 7, make sure that you set your clock ahead one hour, or move it ahead one hour at 2 a.m. on Sunday.
The Indiana State Fire Marshal encourages residents to change the batteries in smoke detectors when the time is changed. It serves as a reminder to make sure fresh batteries are installed as they should be changed twice a year.
Smoke alarms should be installed on every level of the home, and one should be inside each bedroom and outside of each sleeping area.
