[ARCHIVED] Daylight Saving Time Ends Sunday

The Las Cruces Fire Department encourages residents to install new batteries into their smoke alarms when setting clocks to ‘fall back’ when daylight saving time ends Sunday.

Daylight saving time ends at 2 a.m. Sunday, Nov. 6, and the fire department urges residents to install fresh batteries in their smoke alarms when clocks are adjusted one hour to standard time. Most people tend to adjust their clocks before bedtime Saturday night.

LCFD also encourages homeowners to test smoke alarms to ensure they are in proper working order. To check the operation of a smoke alarm, simply press and hold the alarm’s “test” button. If it beeps, or rings loudly, it is working properly.

Smoke alarms should not be tested by lighting a candle or matches under the detector. Repeated use of heat or smoke to activate the device can cause them to fail when an actual fire occurs.

For information on smoke alarms, call the Las Cruces Fire Department at 575/528-3473.
