The Change Your Clock program is in it’s 26th year! Energizer, the International Association of Fire Chiefs, and fire departments nationwide all join forces to educate you to make safe decisions this time of year.
Did you know that 38% of fatal fire injuries occur in homes with no smoke alarms, while 24% occur in homes in which at least one smoke alarm is present but fails to operate, frequently due to dead or missing batteries.
Those percentages are high and they shouldn’t be ~ remember to change the batteries in your smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors when you set your clocks back – it could help save your life!
To help give more families those critical seconds to get out of the house from a smoke alarm warning, 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. 3rd.
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 valued at more than $167!
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.
