The 2017-2018 daylight saving period will commence in Victoria on Sunday, 1 October 2017, when clocks will go forward one hour at 2am. The conclusion of this period in 2018 is Sunday 1 April, when clocks will go backward one hour at 3am.
A smoke alarm provides early warning and time to escape. The MFB's campaign at the end of daylight saving each year reminds people to: "Change your clock; change your smoke alarm battery".
