change_clock_batteryDaylight Saving Time begins on March 9 – set your clocks one hour ahead.

 

Set your clocks one hour ahead and remember to change out the batteries in smoke and carbon monoxide alarms, portable radios and flashlights.  Also check the charge level on fire extinguisher gauges, and dedicate a few moments to evaluate your EMERGENCY WATER needs.

In an emergency, having a supply of clean water for drinking, cooking, and hygiene is a top priority. If a disaster strikes, there could be a temporary loss of access to clean water. Take steps now to store emergency water supplies.

Water Storage:

* Store at least one gallon of water per person, per day for a minimum three-day supply. This means a family of four needs 12 gallons on hand.

*Be sure to account for pets; dogs and cats typically need one gallon/per day.

*Store water in a cool, dark place in your home.

*Do not store water directly on concrete; it is recommended to store water in plastic containers on remnant carpeting, flooring, or wood planks.

*Be sure to check expiration dates on store-bought water.

*Replace water every six months if you use your own containers for storing water – sanitize them first. To sanitize:

– Wash containers with dishwashing soap and thoroughly rinse with water.

– Sanitize by swishing a solution of one teaspoon of liquid household chlorine bleach to a quart of water on all interior surfaces of the container.

– Rinse thoroughly with clean water before use.

    It’s Daylight Saving Time, not Savings.

    Just wanted to do a little public service!
    So this Sunday is when you reset your clocks one hour. And if you ever get confused, just remember this handy little saying: When you trip you fall forward, but when you are surprised, you spring back! That will help you always remember which way to move your clock.
    Hope this helps.
