Daylight savings time begins this weekend
LAWRENCEVILLE - It's almost time to spring forward, and residents are also being reminded to take the opportunity to focus on home safety.

Daylight saving time begins Sunday, when we'll set our clocks ahead one hour. Safety officials say the event marks a convenient reminder to do annual checks.

For example, consider replacing the batteries in your smoke detectors and carbon monoxide detectors. If you don't have an emergency kit at home, now's the time to get one. And if you do have one, put fresh batteries in the flashlight and make sure the food, water and first-aid kit are all in good condition.

Officially, daylight savings time in Illinois begins at 2 a.m. Sunday. Most people moving their clocks forward one hour before going to bed Saturday night.

With Indiana also observing daylight savings time, Knox County will remain one hour ahead of Illinois time.

Daylight savings time ends at 2 a.m. Nov. 3.
