Daylight Savings Time Ends Sunday, November 6, 2016

As daylight savings time ends, we will need to set our clocks back one hour at 2:00 a.m. on Sunday, November 6th. This will return the hour we lost in the spring.

If you are not able to remember to set your clock back 1-hour on Saturday at 2:00 a.m., before you go to sleep, set your clock back 1-hour before you go to bed.

The Lehigh Acres Fire Control and Rescue District would also like to remind everyone to change the batteries in all of the smoke detectors in your residence. If your smoke detector is older than 10 years since manufacture, you should replace the smoke detector, or follow the manufacturer’s recommended time interval in replacing the smoke detector.

Where your smoke detector is electric with a battery back-up, you should replace the detector with another electric with battery back-up smoke detector. If you need assistance in replacing, contact your electrician to assist you.

For any questions about servicing your smoke detector, you can contact our Life Safety Management Division at 239-303-5300 for further assistance.
