Daylight saving ends Sunday
DeKALB – Residents could get an extra hour of sleep this weekend, and local fire officials want to make sure it is a safe sleep.
Daylight saving time comes to an end Sunday at 2 a.m., meaning residents should move their clocks back one hour and take that time to check smoke and carbon monoxide detectors, said Jim Ward, fire prevention education coordinator for the Sycamore Fire Department.
According to the National Fire Protection Association, 40 percent of fire deaths happen in homes with no smoke alarms and 23 percent occur in homes with no working smoke alarm.
