Saturday night we set our clocks ahead one hour for Daylight Saving. But as you turn your clocks forward, you might want to take the extra time to improve your home.
The Red Cross is reminding people that Daylight Saving is a good time to test your smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors.
It’s also a good idea to create and practice your home fire escape plan. This should include getting out of the house in under two minutes and having two ways out.
Now is a good time to clean your medicine cabinet and get rid of expired medicine, sharpen your lawnmower blades so it’s ready for spring, run water in unused plumbing area like a basement bathroom, clean your oven, and replace your car windshield wipers.
So remember, every time you turn your clocks forward or backward, do other little chores around the house you may forget about.
