The Burn Institute and officials with the San Diego Fire-Rescue Department reminded the public that the time change is a good opportunity to check and replace batteries in smoke alarms.
"We are constantly reminding people to install smoke alarms and we always will," San Diego Fire Marshall Monica Orton said. "But it is at least as important to be sure that the smoke alarms you have are in good working order."
According to fire officials, about 96 percent of U.S. homes have smoke alarms, but about 20 percent of those homes have smoke alarms with batteries that are either dead or missing.
Almost two-thirds of the home fire deaths each year are in residences without functioning smoke alarms, fire officials said.
