Fall back—Nov. 3 marks the end of 2019 Daylight Savings Time

Daylight Savings Time is coming to an end. Agent Ernie Dean of Pickens County Farm Bureau and the Georgia Arson Control Board (GAC) would like to remind everyone in North Georgia to change their clocks when Daylight Saving Time ends in November and to have new batteries on hand for their smoke detectors.

Daylight Saving Time ends at 2 a.m. on Sunday, Nov. 3.  Please make sure you set your clocks back an hour.

“The annual change in time is a good opportunity to make sure your smoke detector has fresh batteries and is functioning properly.”

Dean recommends that everyone also change batteries in flashlights, weather radios, and other safety devices. Dean also suggests that the time change be used as a reminder to replace all batteries in safety equipment used for household emergencies.

The Georgia Arson Control Program, Inc. (GAC) was formed in January of 1979 by property and casualty insurers writing business in Georgia.  GAC, with the cooperation of the Commissioner, Georgia Department of Insurance and Safety Fire, and state/local law enforcement agencies, established an ARSON HOTLINE 1-800-282-5804. A reward fund of up to $10,000 was initiated from which monetary rewards are given to individuals who come forward with information that results in the arrest and conviction of those responsible for arson and/or fraud.
