Daylight time kicks in this Sunday at 2 a.m.
The clocks spring forward by one hour which means your weekend will be an hour shorter.
Daylight time is adhered to in more than 70 countries.
Meanwhile Peel firefighters are reminding residents to change the batteries in their smoke and carbon monoxide alarms. Fire officials traditionally use the dates associated with the start and end of daylight time so it’s easy to remember.
Here are some tips on keeping your home carbon monoxide-free.
Regularly maintained appliances that are properly ventilated should not produce hazardous levels of carbon monoxide.
Have a qualified service professional inspect your fuel burning appliance(s) at least once per year.
Have you chimney inspected and cleaned every year by a W.E.T.T. certified professional.
Be sure your carbon monoxide alarm has been certified to the Canadian Standard Association (CSA) CAN/CGA 6.19 standard or the Underwriters Laboratories (UL) 2034 standard.
Install a carbon monoxide alarm in or near the sleeping area(s) of the home.
Install the carbon monoxide alarms(s) in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions. – CINEWS
