Lowndes County- Saturday marks the end of daylight savings time, and we'll be falling back an hour.

Lowndes County Fire and Rescue reminds you to change smoke detector batteries when you change your clocks.

They say fire deaths peak in the winter months, and most of those deaths occur between the hours of 10 P-M and 6 A-M.

By changing batteries when changing your clock, they hope some of these deaths can be prevented.  "The importance of having a smoke detector is like having someone awake, standing by to alert your family in case of a fire or emergency 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year," says Chief Jim Fielding of Lowndes County Fire and Rescue.

Remember to turn your clock back one hour, so you get to work on time Monday.
