Change Your Clocks, Change Your Batteries
The Palatine Fire Department wants to remind residents that Daylight Savings Time begins at 2 a.m. on Sunday, March 13, so don't forget to spring forward those clocks an hour! When changing the clocks around your house, take a few extra minutes to replace the batteries in your smoke detectors and to test them to ensure they are all working properly. This is also a great time to check your carbon monoxide detectors as well! These simple actions can mean the difference between life and death.
