United States of America: Daylight Saving Time officially starts on Sunday.

United States of America: Daylight Saving Time officially starts on Sunday.

Daylight Saving Time will officially starts at 2:00am on Sunday, March 12th, 2017, when clocks are pushed forward one hour to 3:00am, giving us an extra hour of sunlight in the evenings.

Arizona and Hawaii are the only 2 states that do not observe daylight saving time, and Indiana did not observe the practice until 2005.

The American territories of American Samoa, Guam, Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands also do not participate.

Some states have tried to get rid of daylight saving time but haven’t been successful. In the last year alone, 14 state legislatures have debated bills aimed at revising how we keep time.

In March, state legislature in Utah rejected a bill that would have ended daylight saving time.

First responders across the United States of America want to remind the public that when you change your clocks, please change the batteries in your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors so that you and your family can be alerted in case of a fire or carbon monoxide leak.

Get to sleep early and have a good night sleep everybody.
