Spring Forward: Daylight Saving Time Set To Start

Daylight Saving Time will begin again this weekend.

On Sunday, March 14, at 2 a.m. clocks will move forward one hour to Sunday, March 13, 3 a.m.

This means the sun will set an hour later on Sunday than the day before.

Across the nation, firefighters use Daylight Savings Time as a time to remind people to check their fire alarms and replace the device’s batteries. In general, fire alarms should be replaced every 10 years.

In addition to the fire detectors, fire officials said people should check their carbon monoxide detectors as well.

“Winter is not over, and our furnaces have been working hard. This is the time of year when something might break causing deadly carbon monoxide to leak into our homes,” said Massachusetts Fire Marshal Peter J. Ostroskey in a statement. “Working carbon monoxide alarms are the ONLY way to detect that invisible poison.”

For more information on fire alarm and carbon monoxide safety - including help testing and purchasing the equipment - go to mass.gov.
