Over the weekend, you may have remembered to change all the clocks - but there's one other simple Daylight Saving task too many of us overlook.
That task is checking our smoke alarms.
Experts say too many of us aren't checking them - and especially not young adults and renters, according to Fire and Emergency New Zealand.
- Renters reminded to check they have working smoke alarms
- Whanganui fire helmets a hit on the world stage

So The Project has decided to make it more memorable, with top five fire tips from the hottest team on the force - and Newshub's National Correspondent Patrick Gower.
Gower and co's fire-safe advice
- Hey renters, while landlords are required to install and replace expired smoke alarms, you are responsible for checking everything's working. It's as easy as pushing the right buttons.
- Give your smoke alarms a little love - a quick vacuum or dusting is a great way to reduce pesky false alarms.
- Check the expiry date on your alarms. Can't find one? Replace it. Alarms should be swapped out every 10 years, with long-life photoelectric versions that have the stamina to keep you safe.
- We lose our sense of smell when we're asleep, so only a working smoke alarm will alert you and whoever else you've got staying over.
- One's not enough! Closed doors can block smoke, so we recommend installing one in every hallway, living area and of course, bedroom!
- Don't assume your smoke alarms are working - it's never a bad time to fiddle with your doo-dakkky to check that it's tickety-boo!
