Fall Back for Security! Five Daylight Saving End Safety Tips from Security Specialists

Daylight Saving Time ends at 2 a.m. this Sunday, November 7, for most of us. The sun will set in Newark at 5:47 p.m. on Nov. 6. The following day — after Daylight Saving Time concludes — sunset is more than an hour earlier at 4:46 p.m. Days will continue to get shorter until Dec. 21 when the winter solstice arrives. In addition to gaining an extra hour of sleep by setting clocks back an hour, it provides a great opportunity to update the safety and security conditions around your home, including:

  1. Replacing all the batteries in your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors. You should also replace any smoke detector that is older than ten years and any CO detectors that are older than five.
  2. Checking and recharging your fire extinguishers!
  3. Avoiding using portable and fixed space heaters, as heating equipment is the second leading cause of home fire deaths.
  4. Checking electric cords for damage and not overloading electrical outlets or power strips
  5. Only using light bulbs that match the recommended wattage for each lamp.
