It’s that time of year, Southwest Riverside. Time to set your clocks back an hour and get caught up on some well-deserved sleep.
Residents throughout California will be turning their clocks back one hour as Daylight Saving Time ends at 2 a.m. on Sunday, Nov. 4.
This is also the time replace batteries in smoke alarms throughout the house and in carbon monoxide alarms, as well.
In a study conducted by the National Fire Prevention Association (NFPA), nearly 96 percent of households report having at least one fire alarm.
Yet the US Fire Administration reports residential fires make up nearly 83 percent of all civilian fire deaths.
The culprit is generally a disconnected or dead battery.
