DAYLIGHT SAVING TIME ENDS THIS SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 4th Daylight saving time is often utilized as a reminder for important biannual maintenance. Here are some tips for maintenance ideas that can keep you safe! When daylight saving time begins or ends, do you regularly change your smoke detector batteries? This can be a lifesaving habit. Change your clocks, change your wiper blades. Though often overlooked, wiper blade inspection and change should also be considered an important item on the daylight saving checklist. Every time you change the battery in your smoke detector, make it a point to check your windows. Make sure they are not painted or nailed shut and that they open easily without sticking.
