I cannot believe that we are going to be changing our clocks back from Daylight Saving Time in just about a month on Nov. 3. Fot 26 years Energizer and the International Association of Fire Chiefs, and fire departments nationwide join forces for the Change Your Clock Change Your Battery® program to raise awareness of the importance of working smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors in helping to keep families safe in their homes.
Did you know, thirty-eight percent of fatal fire injuries occur in homes with no smoke alarms, while 24 percent occur in homes in which at least one smoke alarm is present but fails to operate, frequently due to dead or missing batteries.*
That’s why it’s important that not only is your smoke alarm working but that your batteries are also changed out. We’ve taken the recommendation from Energizer each year and update our batteries with the time change. It’s become routine to change the batteries as well as the clocks as we make our way around our home. We were sent a family safety kit and what I like about the talking smoke and fire alarm is that it’s great for small kiddos. When I was a kid we had a fire in our home and I can say how scary and confusing it was, I want my children to be able to be prepared and stay safe in case of fire.
