As winter approaches, the Office of the State Fire Marshal is asking Illinoisans to take a few minutes this weekend to change and test the batteries in their smoke alarms while setting their clocks back an hour.

Clocks fall back an hour for Daylight Saving Time this Sunday.

“Daylight Saving Time is a great built-in reminder for us all to check that our smoke alarms are working in case of an emergency,” State Fire Marshal Matt Perez said in a news release.
