In addition to putting your clocks back one hour on Nov. 4, it’s also the time you should replace the batteries in your smoke alarms.

The Hamilton Fire Department says working smoke alarms are required on every storey of the home and outside all sleeping areas.

Carbon monoxide alarms must be installed outside all sleeping areas if your home has a fuel-burning appliance, fireplace or attached garage, the fire department says.
