Spring forward, fall backward…it’s that time of the year again when daylight saving time comes to an end.

That means, at 2-AM Sunday, time turns back one hour.

Lake Area fire districts and departments also say it’s a pretty good time to check those batteries in smoke alarms and review your escape plans should your home catch on fire.

According to statistics, 38% of home fire deaths happen when there is no working alarms in the home with that number being cut in half for homes with working smoke alarms.
