“Fall back” Saturday
It’s that time of year to enjoy an extra hour of sleep on Saturday night.
Daylight Saving Time ends Sunday, Nov. 5 at 2 a.m., so set your clocks back one hour before retiring Saturday night.
Georgia Insurance and Safety Fire Commissioner Ralph Hudgens, Cairo Fire Chief Bill Schafer and Grady County Fire Chief Richard Phillips are urging Georgians to change the battery in their smoke alarms at the same time they change their clocks back to standard time on Sunday, Nov. 5.
In conjunction with the “Change Your Clock, Change Your Battery” fire safety program sponsored by the International Association of Fire Chiefs, Commissioner Hudgens says the annual change from daylight saving time to standard time is a good reminder to make sure the smoke alarm is working properly.
