BOUNTIFUL С Daylight Saving Time ends Sunday, Nov. 4 at 2 a.m., and that means it’s time to turn your clocks back.
It’s also a time public officials encourage people to change the batteries in their home smoke and carbon monoxide detectors.
Thirty-eight percent of fatal fire injuries occur in homes without working smoke alarms, and 24 percent occur in homes where at least one smoke detector fails to operate, often due to dead or missing batteries, according to the International Association of Fire Chiefs.
The association estimates that nationally, 23 million homes are at risk of a deadly fire because their smoke alarms are not functioning.
This year marks the 25th anniversary of the “Change Your Clock Change Your Battery” program endorsed by the IAFC.
