News Turning the clocks ahead this weekend, a good reminder to check smoke alarms SHARE ON: Ashley Roberts, staff Friday, Mar. 6th, 2015 We lose an hour of sleep this weekend. Daylight Saving Time starts on Sunday where we turn our clock ahead one hour and firefighters are reminding residents to take this time to check the batteries in your smoke and carbon monoxide alarms. Fire Chief Brian Leduc explains when everyone should be checking their alarms. //www.myhaliburtonnow.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/03/leducsmokealarm1.mp3 Leduc says that working smoke alarms save lives; the lives of families and the lives of firefighters. If you experience a fire in your home, working smoke alarms will better ensure that you will be standing on the curb when your Fire Department arrives.
