It's almost that time of year again...Daylight savings time. Which means it's time to replace those smoke detector batteries again! I have to admit we are bad at this. What we do that is even worse. We take them down all together when they start chirping. You know what happens then we completely forget about them.
We did not really realize the importance until my youngest son had fire safety day and came home asking what happen to all our smoke detectors, and how are we supposed to get out if there is a fire, with out the alarms?? This was a great question and made me feel horrible. We went straight out bought batteries and re hung every detector. I certainly plan on switching the batteries again on November 7th.
There is a great promotion going on with Energizer that I would love to share with you. I think it's important to raise awareness about the importance of having working smoke detectors in the home.
The end of daylight-saving time is just around the corner on November 7. For twenty-three years, Energizer, the International Association of Fire Chiefs (IAFC) and thousands of fire departments nationwide have worked together to encourage everyone to adopt the life-saving Change Your Clock Change Your Battery® habit of changing and testing smoke alarm batteries with each fall time change. This is so important because having a working smoke alarm can cut the risk of dying in reported home structure fires in half as they can often provide critical extra seconds needed to get out of your home safely. And even though 96% of American homes have smoke alarms, many do not have one that works because of missing or worn-out batteries.
Each year, Energizer donates 200,000 batteries to help local fire departments nationwide. This year everyone has the chance to help double the donations, up to 400,000 batteries. Participation is easy. Visit the CYCCYB tab on the Energizer Bunny® Facebook page, www.facebook.com/energizerbunny, and pledge to change your smoke alarm batteries, share the life-saving Change Your Clock Change Your Battery message with others and create your family’s home escape plan so you have an exit plan in place. Each action will trigger a donation of batteries.
