MEMPHIS, Tenn. — It’s time to spring forward once again.

Daylight Saving Time starts at 2 o’clock a.m. Sunday

It comes as experts warn about the dangers of losing sleep.

Researchers say two weeks’ worth of sleeping just six hours a night is the cognitive equivalent of being drunk.

Another group says the change in schedules that comes with the time change increases the risk of heart attack for a few day

The Memphis Fire Department says changing your battery in your smoke detectors is an important change that could possibly save lives, prevent injuries and minimize property damage.

Memphis residents can apply for a free smoke detector by contacting The Fire Museum of Memphis at 901-636-5650 or by completing an on-line application.

So set your clocks forward and go to bed early tonight.
