Clocks spring forward on March 8
Test smoke and carbon monoxide alarms and replace old batteries when changing the time on your clocks

Newmarket, Ontario, March 4, 2020 - With daylight savings time beginning on Sunday, March 8, Central York Fire Services (CYFS) reminds residents to set clocks ahead one hour, replace the batteries in all smoke and carbon monoxide alarm units and test them to ensure they are in working order.
 carbon monoxide and smoke alarms provide occupants early detection and warns people to leave the premises in the event of a fire or carbon monoxide leak. In order for battery operated smoke and carbon monoxide alarms to do their job, they must have working batteries. It is recommended that alarms be tested monthly and that batteries be replaced at least once a year.

It's the law to have working smoke alarms on every storey of the home and outside all sleeping areas. It is also required that carbon monoxide alarms be installed outside all sleeping areas so you can hear it where you are sleeping.
