Wisconsin officials offers safety reminders for Daylight Saving
MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- The Wisconsin Department of Military Affairs says the switch to daylight saving time provides a good opportunity for homeowners to make a number of safety checks.
Clocks get moved back an hour Saturday night.
The DMA says that is a good time to check and replace batteries as needed on home smoke detectors and carbon monoxide detectors.
The DMA also recommends that every home have a basic emergency kit with supplies such as food and water to last you and your family at least three days.
Other items like a battery powered or crank radio, flashlights and first aid kit are also recommended.

Daylight saving time goes into effect at 2 a.m., so at that time -- or the night before -- remember to set your clocks and watches back an hour.
