Signage error (or not)

For Daylight Saving(s) Time, this photo has been making the rounds on Facebook:


The (volunteer) fire department in the picture is real; the question is whether this sign was an inadvertent error or whether the image has been doctored. I don’t know which. [Added 1/9/17: I now know, from the fire department in question, that the sign is the result of vandalism.]

The fire department has a spiffy building:


(I’ve found images with two different paint jobs — grey, as above, and beige — but none with the sign in them.)

I did move my clocks forward this weekend — well, the crucial one. I have a lot of clocks. At least the clock on my computer shifts automatically.
