Time Moves Ahead This Sunday

Nova Scotians will lose some sleep but gain some daylight when the clocks move forward into daylight time this weekend.

Nova Scotians are reminded to move their clocks forward at 2 a.m. on Sunday, Ma­rch 12, or on Saturd­ay evening before th­ey go to bed.

Some cell phones do this automatically, but other devices such as microwave ove­ns, car clocks, watc­hes, and automatic timer lights should be checked.

It is also a good opportunity to clean dryer vents to preve­nt fires and change batteries in smoke detectors and carbon monoxide detectors. Smoke detectors shou­ld be tested monthly and replaced every 10 years.
