Be prepared to Spring Forward this weekend. Daylight Savings Time begins this Sunday, March 10, 2019 at 2:00 am CDT. Before you go to bed on Saturday be sure to advance your clocks one (1) hour.
Daylight Savings Time is a good reminder to test smoke and carbon monoxide alarms, to change the batteries in your smoke and carbon monoxide alarms, and to practice your fire escape plan with your family.
Yearly time changes may also affect your Titan bill:
- As we enter Daylight Savings Time in the spring, you may see one less hour billed to your account. For example:
- an eight (8) hour shift from 12:00 am to 8:00 am will only be billed only seven (7) hours due to the advancing of the clock one hour at 2:00 am.
- As we leave Daylight Savings Time in the fall you may see one hour of Overtime billed to your account. For example:
- an eight (8) hour shift from 12:00 am to 8:00 am will actually require nine (9) hours of coverage due to the reversal of the clock one hour at 2:00 am. This may result in that staff member working one (1) hour of overtime to cover the nine (9) hour shift.
If you have any questions about how Daylight Savings Time may affect you, please reach out to your Titan Security Account Manager.
