Daylight Savings Safety

Daylight Saving Time ends on November 6, and we’ll all turn back our clocks an hour–or let our smartphones do it for us.

Daylight Savings serves a great reminder to make small beneficial changes that will give you peace of mind all year long. We’ve put together this quick list and graphic with the five things you should check and change along with your clocks as we fall back to Standard Time.  

  • Passwords

    Data breaches go undetected for months, sometimes years! Consumers should change their passwords at least once a year to protect their information and identity. Better yet, use a password manager.

  • Smoke Detector Batteries

    According to FEMA3 out of 5 home fire deaths result from fires in properties without working smoke alarms. Test and change batteries often! 

  • Tire Pressure

Underinflated tires have a higher risk of damage and failure.

  • Credit Score

Check your credit score and devise a plan to improve it over time.

  • Medication

Your medicine cabinet is full of expired or leftover medication. Dispose of it properly and don’t forget to scratch out identifying information on any bottles to further protect your identity and personal health info.
