Energizer: Change Your Clocks Change Your Batteries

Growing up in a house with a fireman the importance of smoke detectors and testing them has been embedded into my brain. My husband and I do follow the soon-to-be 23 year old tradition of Change Your Clock Change Your Battery® program, created by Energizer and the International Association of Fire Chiefs (IAFC), which reminds people to check and change the batteries in their smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors during the fall time change.

This simple action could be life saving. Having the smoke detectors in your home is not enough. You need to make sure that the batteries are working and replace them when needed. It only take a few minutes to change those batteries... and you will have a whole extra hour to do it!

I know how hard fire fighters work to spread the word about fire safety and the importance of checking your smoke detectors. And, like my dad, many of our firemen are volunteers. Why not give them a hand and remind your friends, family and neighbors to Change Your Clock Change Your 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.
GIVEAWAY: 1 Lucky Winner will receive a First Alert Smoke Alarm along with a 2 pack of 9volt Energizer® Max® batteries.
