Daylight saving time ends, keep in mind to change smoke alarm batteries

Daylight saving time ends, keep in mind to change smoke alarm batteries

The time change this weekend means you can enjoy a guilt-free extra hour of shut-eye.

With clocks falling back one hour at 2 a.m. Sunday, officials with Windsor Fire & Rescue Services are urging residents to install new batteries in their smoke and carbon monoxide alarms when they reset their clocks.

Sleep-deprived folks everywhere - rejoice.

Daylight Saving Time will return on Sunday, March 10, 2019, when we'll switch our clocks ahead an hour.

Instead of looking at the end of daylight saving time as losing an hour of evening time, you could also look at it as gaining an hour of morning time.

So, make sure to set those clocks back before you go to sleep Saturday night!

The Fair Labor Standards Act requires that overtime-eligible employees must be credited with and paid for all hours actually worked, even on nights where there is an additional hour in their usual shift.

Congress most recently extended it in 2007 so daylight saving runs from 2 a.m. the second Sunday in March to 2 a.m. the first Sunday in November. The employee must be paid for all those hours, which must count toward the total hours worked for the week.
