Insurance and Safety Fire Commissioner John W. Oxendine reminds: Don't forget to change the batteries in your smoke alarms when you move the clock back to standard time.
"Every year in Georgia we have numerous fire fatalities in homes that didn't have smoke alarms, or where the alarms didn't function," he said.
"If you have a smoke alarm, make sure it's in working order," he added. "Changing the battery at least once every year and cleaning dust from the device are easy ways to ensure continued protection of your family and your property. Having a working smoke alarm doubles the chances you will survive a fire in your home."
