All clocks to fall back

Daylight Saving Time ends Sunday at 2 a.m. Clocks should be turned back by one hour.

The Laguna Beach Fire Department also reminds the community to change the batteries on their smoke detectors at the same time.

Beginning in 2007, Daylight Saving Time has been expanded. Most of the United States began Daylight Saving Time on the second Sunday in March and will revert to standard time on the first Sunday in November. Previously, Daylight Saving began in April and ended in October.

This results in about six weeks more of Daylight Saving. The change was enacted in 2005 in the Energy Policy Act. Congress may change Daylight Saving back to pre-2007 dates depending upon the results of a study by the Energy Department.
