Spring Forward Sunday: Don’t Forget to Reset Your Clocks
Don’t forget to turn your clocks ahead at 2 a.m. Sunday morning, March 12, for daylight saving time (DST).
DST is the period of the year when clocks are moved one hour ahead, resulting in an extra hour of sunlight during the evening hours.
The changeover back to standard time (ST) occurs November 5 at 2 a.m. Some people remember which way to move their clocks using the phrase, “spring forward, fall back.”
Montgomery County Fire Chief Scott Goldstein is urging all residents to test and check smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors to ensure they are working and up-to-date when they change their clocks this weekend. Read more about fire safety in this Montgomery County Fire & Rescue Service post.
