I’m really finding it hard to believe that it’s already the 13th of October.  I’ve been really busy with the blog, our house, Amber’s schooling and college entrance requirements; most days I’m lucky to be in bed before midnight only to wake up and start all over again.  Which is why I’m looking forward to that extra hour of sleep on November 3rd.  That’s right it’s ‘fall back‘ time – daylight savings.

It’s also that time of year when Energizer, the International Association of Fire Chiefs, and fire departments nationwide join forces for the Change Your Clock Change Your Battery® program to raise awareness of the importance of working smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors in helping to keep families safe in their homes.  This is the 26th year for the annual program and the message is still an important one.

Did you know, 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.

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. 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. 3.

Remember to change the batteries in your smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors when you set your clocks back – it could help save a life.

How You Can Get Involved

From now through November 3, visit the Energizer Bunny® Facebook page and click on the Fire Safety Info Tab.  Here you will have the chance to enter a sweepstakes to win an additional Family Safety Kit.  Energizer will be giving away one Family Safety Kit per day.

In addition you can find fire safety tips, a home escape plan that you can download and draw your family’s home escape plan, as well as a coloring and activity sheet.

The Change Your Clock Change Your Battery® program is just one of the ways Energizer brings to life the company’s commitment to making a positive impact in communities across the country. That’s positivenergy™.   For more information, please visit energizer.com/change and facebook.com/energizerbunny.

  1. If I win the Family Safety Kit, I will definitely put everything to good use!!! I don't have a good smoke alarm right now. It has been making beeping noises, but we think we fixed it. It would be so good to have a NEW smoke alarm. I would love to have a new flashlight too!

  2. I will set up the alarms in my home for emergency. I will have the flashlight at the quick in case of emergency. I will go through to see the other alarms that need batteries in the house.

  3. I will hang the talking smoke alarm and use the ( volts to change out the batteries in the other detectors. I will use the flashlight in my hurricane safety kit.

  8. I would plan to use the Family Safety Kit to fulfill the "Change Your Clock Change Your Battery" program that Energizer promotes. On November 3rd, we should remember to test and change our smoke and carbon monoxide detectors when you change your clock back from Daylight Saving Time. I also like the Escape Plan Grid that they have available on their site to help visualize how your family would practice safe exits in emergencies.
