TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) - Prepare to lose an hour! It's that time again to change your clocks. This time we are springing forward.

Daylight Saving Time will officially go into effect early Sunday morning. This means you should set your clocks ahead one hour before you go to sleep Saturday night.

If you plan to buy alcohol Saturday night, the Indiana Alcohol and Tobacco Commission announced it will allow the sale of alcoholic beverages until 4am.

The Terre Haute Fire Department also has a few reminders to keep you safe as we spring forward. They ask that you use this time to check the batteries in all of your home's smoke detectors.

Fire officials say you should change the batteries twice a year. An easy way to remember is to make it a habit each time you change your clocks. It's a simple task but safety experts say it is very important. If you have questions or need help with smoke alarms in your home you can reach out to your local fire department.
