Daylight savings time ends on Sunday, November 1st and the Lombard Fire Department is reminding you - when you change your clocks, change your smoke alarm and carbon monoxide detector batteries! 

The National Fire Protection Association reports that 71% of smoke alarms which failed to operate had missing, disconnected or dead batteries. One easy step can help save lives: change your batteries when you change your clocks on November 1st. Changing smoke alarm batteries at least once a year, testing those alarms, and reminding others to do the same are some of the simplest, most effective ways to reduce these tragic deaths and injuries.
