Change Your Clock Change Your Battery with Energizer

Change Your Clock Change Your Battery

bunnylogo

Daylight Saving Time… whether you like it or not (I don’t… ugh) is drawing near. Soon it will be time to change our clocks… once again. On November 3, 2013 we will actually “gain” an hour and “fall back” (unless, of course, you have children that don’t care what the clock says).

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.*

Crazy, huh? It’s serious business! That’s why Energizer has teamed up with OurKidsMom to help spread this simple life-saving reminder out to our readers – 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.

  48. Eileen Richter says:

    Our family has a tiny piece of farmland where we sometimes camp, but with no water and no electricity, it can be boring for someone like me without the ability to get out and hike, fish, garden, etc. We’d like to have a generator for emergencies and maybe just to use for some “necessities” of life, and still be able to enjoy nature.

    The eZG3500 portable generator is something we have been considering for our farm.
