“Spring forward, fall back!” That old saying is the best way to remember which way you should move the hands on the faces of your clocks (or their digital numerals) as part of the annual Daylight Saving Time (DST) process. This year’s rite of Spring, and springing forward, will take place this coming Sunday, March 11, 2012. And it’s the perfect time to practice a little continuity planning at home too!
While you’re changing your clocks, also take the time to check the batteries in all of the smoke detectors and alarms in your home and change them, if necessary, as well. Test each alarm to make sure that it is proper working order and replace any that are defective. Failure to do so could result in a tragedy that was easily preventable.
