MADISON (WKOW) – It's almost time to spring ahead and Wisconsin officials are using the occasion to remind residents about home safety.
Daylight saving time begins Sunday, when we'll set our clocks ahead one hour. Safety officials say this is the perfect time to remind everyone to do annual checks around the house.
For example, consider replacing the batteries in the smoke detectors and carbon monoxide detectors. If you don't have an emergency kit at home, no is a good time to get one. If you already have a kit, then this is a great opportunity to put fresh batteries in the flashlight and make sure the food, water and first-aid kit are all in good condition.
