UNDATED (WTVB) - Daylight Savings Time is this weekend. Everyone will have to remember to turn their clocks ahead -- or, spring forward -- one hour come two AM Sunday. Firefighter Michael McLieer, with the fire safety group ESCAPE, says that this is also an opportunity for people to do some vital maintenance in their homes. He says they should use Daylight Savings to not only check the batteries in their smoke detectors, but also consider when the detectors were last replaced, since they have a life expectancy of ten years. He says it's always best to buy the newest model smoke detectors, and keep at least one on each floor of the home.
