Nova Scotians will be able to enjoy more sunlight in the evenings when daylight savings time begins on Sunday, March 9.
People are reminded to set their clocks and watches ahead one hour at 2 a.m. on Sunday March 9, or to do so on Saturday evening, March 8, before they go to bed.
Watches and clocks are not the only items that need adjustment - ovens, microwaves, car clocks, electronic devices, and automatic timer lights need to be turned ahead.
It is also a good time to clean dryer vents to prevent fires, and change batteries in smoke detectors and carbon monoxide detectors. Smoke detectors should be tested monthly and replaced every 10 years.
