Spring has arrived and now it’s time for the routine Spring time change this 2010.

The clocks are set 1 hour forward on the night of March 13th, or else in the early morning hours of March 14th, as part of the Daylight Savings time change for each year.

Although people may choose setting their clocks 1 hour forward before they go to sleep on March 13 or just in the early hours of March 14, it is very important to make sure that the clocks are set 1 hour forward before your day start.

Fire departments across the nation are reminding residents of their campaign “Change your Clock -Change your Battery”, reminding citizens to change the batteries in their smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors when they change their clocks this Sunday, March 14, 2010.

“Properly working smoke detectors save lives”.  Remember, the life of a smoke detector is 10 years. If your detector is 10 years old or older, it should be replaced.

In order to understand a little more about Daylight Savings Time 2010, let’s look at Wikipedia’s explanation” “In a typical case where a one-hour shift occurs at 02:00 local time, in spring the clock jumps forward from 02:00 standard time to 03:00 DST and that day has 23 hours, whereas in autumn the clock jumps backward from 02:00 DST to 01:00 standard time, repeating that hour, and that day has 25 hours.”
