Saturday night, before you go to bed, set your clocks ahead one hour.
It's our semi-annual ritual of messing up our internal clocks by changing our external clocks.
Forget and you arrive at church when everyone else is leaving.
The American Red Cross reminds everyone it’s also a good time to TEST the batteries in their smoke alarms as they TURN their clocks ahead an hour.
Other steps to prepare your household for emergencies:
- Install smoke alarms. At a minimum, put one on every level of the home, inside bedrooms and outside sleeping areas.
- Practice an escape plan. Make sure everyone in the household knows how to get out of every room and how to get out of the home in less than two minutes.
