It’s time to spring forward this weekend.

We jump ahead an hour early Sunday, so make sure you adjust your clocks in your house.

And as is customary, fire departments throughout the North Country are also advising you to change the batteries in your smoke alarms and carbon-monoxide detectors.

According to the city of Watertown, of homes with smoke alarms, 30 percent of them don’t actually work.

So take the time when the change in time to update yours this weekend.

And if you need smoke alarms, contact the American Red Cross in Watertown at 782-4410.
