If you want to be on time tomorrow, set your clock ahead by one hour before going to bed tonight.
Daylight saving time begins at 2 a.m. Sunday and continues to Nov. 3.
Riverside city and county officials emphasized using the occasion to replace batteries in smoke and carbon monoxide detectors.
"The presence of working smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors can mean the difference between life and death," said Riverside County Fire Chief John Hawkins. "I urge residents to use the beginning and ending of daylight savings time as a reminder to check both alarms and replace faulty or broken ones.
"Always replace the batteries in each alarm on every floor of the home and test them to ensure they are in working order. Smoke and carbon monoxide detectors, when installed and tested regularly, are designed to alert you and your loved ones in the event of a fire."
According to the Riverside Fire Department, statistics show two-thirds of fire-related deaths occur in homes where there are no working smoke alarms.
