Fire Officials Encourage Changing Smoke Detector Batteries With Change Of Clock

(Beaver Dam) Your weekend will be one hour longer.  Daylight savings time ends at 2am Sunday, when the clock goes back to 1am.  Beaver Dam Fire Department Public Education Coordinator Chris Ackley says it is especially important when you set your clocks back one hour to also replace the batteries in your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors. Approximately 500 people are treated at hospital emergency rooms across the state annually for carbon monoxide poisoning, according to the Wisconsin Department of Health Services.
