We all “fall back” one hour Sunday morning, with the end of Daylight Saving Time until March. It’s also a good time to make sure your home is a bit safer.
Daylight Saving Time was introduced during World War I, made permanent in 1966 and expanded in 2007 to run from March to November. Any state can opt out of DST, as have Arizona and Hawaii. But it's not so much the time change; it's how you use that time.
To that end, Lt. Dan Akerman with Escambia Fire-Rescue, reminds everyone of the 27th annual “Change Your Clocks, Change Your Battery” campaign.
