Time change this weekend

Set your clocks back one hour this Sunday morning, and check your smoke detector batteries

Set your clocks back one hour this weekend

Although it seems the debate over the necessity of twice-a-year time changes gets a little louder every year, it is nonetheless time to move your clocks back one hour this Sunday at 2 a.m.

It isn’t uniform across Canada. There are municipalities (Creston) and provinces (Saskatchewan) that just ignore the time change, but for the rest of us, it’s time to fall back.

It is also, as Kimberley Fire Chief Al Collinson reminds us, time to make sure the batteries in your smoke detector are replaced and that it’s functioning properly.

“Working smoke alarms cut the risk of dying in a home fire in half,” Collinson said.
