It's almost time to change your clocks, moving the time ahead one hour before you go to bed Saturday night.
It's also time to change the batteries in your smoke detectors, according to Akron Fire Captain Al Bragg.
"Just a few days ago, we had a pretty significant fire in a home with no smoke alarms," said Bragg. If you have early warning that you have a problem, something that turns out to be major could have been kept very minor."
Bragg says most people don't know that all smoke detectors, regardless of style or wiring, need to be replaced at least once every ten years. He also recommends using a vacuum cleaner to remove dust or other debris from the unit about once a year.
The city of Akron requires smoke detectors on every floor of every house, plus with a few feet of each bedroom.
