Before going to bed Saturday night, remember to set clocks forward one hour in preparation for the beginning of daylight saving time. The time change officially begins at 2 a.m. on Sunday.

It’s also a good time to change smoke detector batteries, according to emergency services officials.

“Smoke alarms most often fail because of missing, dead or disconnected batteries, so maintenance is a simple, effective way to protect you and your family,” said Washington State Fire Marshal Charles M. Duffy.

This year, daylight saving time will end on Sunday, Nov. 3.
