UNDATED (WKZO) -- You have a chance to both save some daylight and perhaps save your life this weekend if you add checking your smoke detector’s batteries to resetting your clocks.
After 30 years as a firefighter, State Fire Marshal Rich Miller says this simple device can make all the difference between life and death.
He says smoke makes you sleep more deeply, until it kills you.
He says the best kind of smoke alarms are hardwired into the home’s electrical grid with battery back-ups, but there are new ones that will also get the job done without rewiring your house.
They are powered by lithium batteries that last ten years.
Saturday night, before you go to bed, roll back your clock to the hour before and enjoy the extra hour of sleep.
