Daylight saving ends in NSW on Sunday at 3am when clocks will be put back one hour.

A referendum in 1976 resulted in daylight saving being adopted on a permanent basis.

It still generates much debate between those in favour and against, but one thing Fire and Rescue NSW want us to agree on is the value of changing smoke alarm batteries when we adjust the clocks.

Sutherland fire station handed out 1000 9-volt batteries to seniors who attended a Sutherland Shire Council concert at Sutherland Entertainment Centre last Thursday.

Firefighter Billy King, a station officer with more than 50 years’ experience, and said it was vital for older or less mobile residents to have a working smoke alarm.

“In 2011, 80 per cent of all fatalities in the fires that we attended were aged 60 years and over,” Mr King said.
