We lose an hour of sleep this weekend, but gain an extra hour of daylight.
As you change your clocks this Sunday, you're being reminded to change the batteries in your smoke alarms.
Hamilton Fire Safety Officer Claudio Mostacci says smoke alarms are the first line of defence in a fire and people who think they will smell smoke while they're asleep, are sadly mistaken.
Mostacci says the chances of survival are slim to none without detectors.
By law, all homes are required to have smoke alarms on every floor, while owners of buildings are responsible for making sure their tennants are equipped with working alarms in their units. Tenants should also be proactive in letting their landlords know when the alarms are not working.
Regular maintenace like monthy testing and even vaccuuming dust out of smoke alarms is recommended.
