Daylight Saving Time begins March 10
Temperatures in Georgia dipped down into the 20s over the past week, but that won’t stop the arrival of an early sign of summer.
Yes, Daylight Saving Time will begin on schedule – at 2 a.m. Sunday, March 10. And you know the drill: It’s “Spring forward, fall back,” so you’ll need to set your clocks ahead one hour – sacrificing a precious hour of sleep. (Don’t worry, you’ll get it back – but not until Nov. 3.)
And as long as you’re climbing a ladder to reset that wall clock, you might as well take the opportunity to check the batteries in your smoke alarms (as well as your carbon monoxide detectors, if you have any of those).
Don’t have a smoke alarm? Or maybe yours is broken, or lacks a battery. Or maybe you just can’t physically reach it. The White County fire department should be able to assist in any of those situations.
Because the risk of dying in a fire is much higher in homes that have no working smoke detector, the fire department has programs aimed at making sure every White County resident is protected by a smoke alarm.
