Do you dread Daylight Savings Time? This is when we roll the clocks back one hour and it gets darker around 4:30. I am actually looking forward to it. I’m finding it hard to get up when its pitch black out at 6:00 am – of course that extra hour of sleep is always nice too! Energizer is urging all of us to change the batteries in our smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors when we set our clocks back. This is a welcome reminder. It will take less than five minutes and it could save a life.
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. In conjunction with this program, Energizer is offering a Family Safety Kit Prize Pack (shown above) for giveaway to one lucky Moms Own Words reader!
About the Change Your Clock Change Your Battery Program
The message is simple, and the habit can be lifesaving. Thirty-eight percent of fatal fire injuries occur in homes without working 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.* For 25 years, the Change Your Clock Change Your Battery® program has been dedicated to helping share the life-saving reminder to change the batteries in your home’s smoke and carbon monoxide detectors when you change your clocks for daylight savings. This year, Energizer and the International Association of Fire Chiefs (IAFC) will mark the silver anniversary of one of the nation’s top home fire safety programs by turning back the clocks of time to celebrate the many life-saving fire safety and preparedness innovations that are now available.
Energizer is honoring its 25th year by donating 250,000 batteries to fire departments across the country to distribute to local families in their areas and adopting 25 fire departments in 25 cities across the nation, who, in addition to batteries, will be equipped with a variety Energizer® family safety products for their department and to share in their communities. Together, they 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. 4.
