Time to Change the Clocks

Hello RFMA members,

Well, it's almost time to change the clocks. For the majority of the country, Daylight Savings Time starts at 2:00 AM Sunday March 13th. This is a good time to send a message to all your stores to check the clock settings on their programmable thermostats even if the change is supposed to be automatic. It's also good to check the settings on the security and sprinkler systems and time clocks for exterior lighting and signage. This is also a good time of the year to check the roof drains to ensure they are clear for proper water flow. On a personal note, it's time to reprogram your t-stat at home and check the time clock settings for your sprinkler system. Last, but most importantly, replace the batteries in all your smoke and carbon monoxide detection alarms.

Well, it's almost Conference time. Are you ready???  We are.

Dover and out.

Don't forget about those refrigeration off cycle/defrost clocks, as well! Defrost in the middle of lunch or dinner can wreak some havoc! Great post, Jeff!

Good catch Erich. I'll make sure to include this for the next time change in the Fall. Thanks
