Tonight’s the night to turn your clocks back one hour. California and
most other states will “fall back” at 2:00am Sunday as the state ends Daylight
Savings Time and returns to Pacific Standard Time. The time change gives us all an extra hour of sleep.
Fire officials urge people to use the semi-annual clock-changing exercise as a reminder to replace batteries for smoke and carbon monoxide detectors, as well as emergency flashlights. Smoke alarms have a life span of about 10 years and have the date stamped on the back.
