Springfield Mayor Domenic Sarno says the city, as it has in the past, will provide free smoke detectors to senior citizens in owner-occupied homes. But this year the city's smoke alarm installation program is being expanded to also include carbon monoxide detectors, while supplies last.
The program is paid for through a grant from the Massachusetts Department of Public Health, which received funding from the Federal Emergency Agency Management Agency.
Daylight saving time begins on Sunday, when clocks are set ahead by one hour.
