State offers safety reminders for daylight saving

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- It's almost time to spring forward, 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 the event marks a convenient reminder to do annual checks.

For example, consider replacing the batteries in your smoke detectors and carbon monoxide detectors. If you don't have an emergency kit at home, now's the time to get one. And if you do have one, put fresh batteries in the flashlight and make sure the food, water and first-aid kit are all in good condition.

The Wisconsin Department of Military Affairs has additional safety tips on its website.
