Now that winter is coming to a close, Balfour Beatty Communities is looking forward to spring and the extra hours of sunlight that follow. For most of the United States, Daylight Savings Time begins Sunday, March 8th, where we get to push our clocks ahead one more hour— or spring ahead as they say. The change occurs at 2:00am local time. Changing your clocks is a perfect time to check your battery status on your smoke detectors. Smoke alarms save lives, prevent injuries and minimize property damage by detecting fires early and alerting residents, allowing crucial time to escape.

To learn more about fire safety equipment and best practices, visit the Safety page of your property website. If you find that any of your safety devices are not operating properly and needs to be replaced, please contact your local maintenance office immediately.
