Energizer Change Your Clock Change Your Battery Reminder & Giveaway

It’s hard to believe that in just a few days we will be changing our clocks back from Daylight Saving Time.  This year the time change is on November 4 and it also marks the 25th anniversary of the annual Change Your Clock Change Your Battery® program.  Energizer and the International Association of Fire Chiefs (IAFC) are once again working with local fire departments nationwide to raise awareness on the importance of working smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors in helping to keep families safe in their homes. 

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.* 
In my house we also know that it means to change the batteries in our smoke alarm and carbon monoxide detector. Its a simple important life-saving reminder to change the batteries in your smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors when you set your clocks back – it could help save a life. If you have family members that are elderly or in need of help changing the batteries its a great way to help out and save lives.

Even my son knows we need to change our batteries! He helps out by handing me the package then later placing our old battery in the recycling bin at the store.

Family Safety Kit

Having a reliable flash light is a must for your home, plus it can make for fun shadow puppet times! Just be sure to have back up Energizer batteries in your home.

Since having my son I have wanted to find a good smoke and carbon monoxide detector that talks. The alarm sound scares my son so a talking one might be something that he will be able to follow the directions from. This time of year with more candles lit and holiday lights up is also great to talk about fire safety and what to do in an emergency with your kids. 


Family Safety Kit complete with a reusable grocery tote containing:
·         One two-pack of 9volt Energizer® MAX® Batteries with Power Seal Technology – Dependable, powerful performance for the devices that help keep your family safe; now hold their charge when stored for up to five years
·         One Energizer® Flameless Wax Candle – Enjoy the realistic flicker of a scented wax candle without the worry of open flame or hassle of soot and dripping wax
·         One Energizer® Weatheready® Safety Light – Waterproof flashlight powered by AA, AAA or C cell batteries; includes safety whistle and imprinted preparedness checklist
·         One Kidde Battery-Operated Combination Carbon Monoxide and Smoke Alarm

No, I don't usually. I change them when the units beep, letting me know the batteries are low.

Rambles of a SAHM said...

Nope, we also change ours when it beeps!

Amy L said...

We try to remember to change the smoke alarm batteries when we change the clocks. If not, then they beep at us incessantly when the batteries are low, so then they get taken care of quickly!

Rochel S said...

We usually change it when it starts beeping.

Heather! said...

Yep, we change them every fall.
