GREEN BAY, Wis. (WBAY) – Take heed of that meme of Cher going around Facebook and Twitter. Don’t forget to “turn back time” Saturday night.

We’ll set our clocks back one hour for the end of Daylight Saving Time.

Firefighters say it’s the perfect time to change the battery on your smoke alarm. More than two-thirds of house fire deaths happen in homes with no working smoke detectors.

If your smoke alarm is old, go ahead and replace the whole thing.

“Smoke alarms don’t last forever. a lot of times we run into people that have smoke alarms that are 12, 15, 20 years old. After 10 years, they need to be replaced, just because the detection components kinda wear out,” says Lt. Cody Johnson, Green Bay Metro Fire Department.

The American Red Cross says a working smoke alarm in your home cuts your chance of dying in a fire by nearly half.
