Energizer: Change Your Clock Change Your Battery & Family Safety Kit

cyccyb-logoWow it's already that time of the year to change the clocks back. Where did this summer go? The days are getting shorter and the weather here in Michigan is getting colder.

Too many of us know someone who has been impacted by a home fire and believe it can never happen to “me.”  Yet, the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) estimates that 28 million homes are at risk because they either don’t have smoke alarms or their smoke alarms do not work, mostly due to dead or missing batteries. A working smoke alarm can make the difference in whether you have the critical extra seconds to safely escape. Energizer and the International Association of Fire Chiefs (IAFC) have worked for decades to change those numbers with the Change Your Clock Change Your Battery® program, and this fall they are continuing that work with firefighters across the country bringing the total number of batteries donated to 5 million.

The message is simple, and the habit can be lifesaving. For 26 years, 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.

    Neat
    We replace all our batteries in emergency flashlights, smoke fire detectors and door bells when the time changes..

  13. I learned that the reason it’s safe to dispose of regular batteries in the trash now is that they no longer contain heavy metals such as mercury and the Energizer was the first to do this.

  14. I learned that you need to get the whole family involved in a safety plan and practice exit plans so that everyone is prepared in case the worse happens.

  15. I learned the great tip of automatically changing your smoke detector batteries when the time changes….that makes it super easy to remember.

    monoxide detectors’ sensitivity by cleaning
