Leaves falling, pumpkin spiced everything, Halloween and of course the time change. Along with the time change it is a perfect time to change the batteries in your fire and carbon monoxide detectors. You have an extra hour after all.
Energizer wants to help.
For the last 26 years, Energizer has partnered with the International Association of Fire Chiefs (IAFC) to help keep families safe through their Change Your Clock Change Your Battery® program. The concept seems so simple, change your clock then change the batteries in your fire alarm and yet studies indicate 24% percent of fatal fires occur in homes in which at least one smoke alarm is present but fails to operate, frequently due to dead or missing batteries.* That number boggles my mind.
Besides this amazing campaign to encourage safety and responsibility in the home, Energizer will also be donating 250,000 batteries this fall to fire departments across the country to distribute to families in their communities. This will hopefully give families those critical seconds that a fire and a carbon monoxide detector provide to get out of a home in danger, safely. And finally, Energizer will host Home Safety Days and neighborhood canvasses spanning throughout National Fire Prevention Month in October until the end of daylight saving time on Sunday, Nov. 3.
