Daylight Saving Time ends early November 6.

In addition to remembering to turn clocks back one hour before going to bed November 5, people should change the batteries in smoke detectors, vacuum the units and test them.

Fire officials also say smoke detectors should be replaced every ten years.

The same should be done with carbon monoxide detectors.

The American Red Cross has a program for installing smoke detectors, free of charge, at area homes.  Contact the Southern Tier Chapter for more information.
