Energizer Change Your Clock Change Your Batteries Program Review and Giveaway #sponsored

Now that time has "Fall Back" we need to be reminded that we need to change the batteries in the smoke and carbon monoxide detectors in our homes. I sometimes forget on the day time changes as I am busy changing clocks all over the house and car. I wanted to post this as a reminder to everyone that has not yet changed the batteries in your detectors and for you to remind loved ones that may have forgotten as well. Have you changed yours?

I know many times in the past I have taken batteries out of a smoke detector from my learning curve for cooking lol I always try remember to put the batteries back. Now would be the perfect time to go check all your detectors and make sure new batteries are in them. Something so simple as a new battery in a smoke alarm can save lives. 

Since working with Energizer last year for the Change Your Clock Change Your Battery program I have it in my mind that time changes and so do batteries. I remind people I know about changing detector batteries when they remind me of the time change. So be safe and go change those smoke and carbon monoxide detector batteries if you have not since the time change. 

The Change Your Clock Change Your Battery program has been dedicated to sharing the important reminder to replace the batteries in your home’s smoke and carbon monoxide detectors when you change your clocks for daylight saving time. Together, Energizer and the IAFC are working to combat some alarming statistics:

·         Thirty-eight percent of fatal fire injuries occur in homes without working smoke alarms.*

·         Twenty-four percent occur in homes in which at least one smoke alarm is present but fails to operate, frequently due to dead or missing batteries.*

“All too often firefighters see firsthand the devastating effects on families whose homes don’t have working smoke detectors,” said Chief William Metcalf, President and Chairman of the Board of the International Association of Fire Chiefs. “Thanks to Energizer, more than 5 million batteries have been donated in communities across the country through this program. This not only helps provide  families with critical early warning time to escape a home fire, but it also helps protect our firefighters by reducing the likelihood they’ll have to enter a burning building to rescue someone still in the home.”

Families are encouraged to use the extra hour “gained” from the end of daylight saving time to review their home fire safety plans and remind their friends, family and neighbors of the life-saving habit of changing and testing smoke alarm batteries.

“Twenty-six years ago, we realized the crucial role that a working battery in a smoke alarm plays in helping to give families the critical extra time to escape a home fire. We felt a responsibility to do our part in helping to keep families safe,” said Alan Hoskins, President & CEO with Energizer. “Today, it’s inspiring to look back on the millions of batteries donated and the lives that Energizer has helped to save as a result of the Change Your Clock Change Your Battery program – as we like to say, that’s positivenergy!”

To help give more families those critical seconds, Energizer is donating 250,000 batteries this fall to fire departments across the country to distribute to families in their communities.
