Change Your Clocks, Change Your Batteries
Daylight Saving Time begins at 2:00 a.m. Sunday, March 10. When you change your clocks, the Wheaton Fire Department also encourages you to change the batteries in your smoke detectors and carbon monoxide detectors. Replacing the batteries about every 6 months helps ensure they operate correctly, and using Daylight Savings Time is an easy way to remember when you last replaced the batteries.
