Change Your Clock Change Your Battery & Giveaway

A product was given for review for my honest opinion. No other compensation was given.
Yes, it is about that time again...time for Daylight Savings Time! You may be dreading the earlier darkness and shorter days, but a positive thing about Nov. 3 is that it is also the 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.

Too many of us know someone who has been impacted by a home fire and believe it can never happen to “me.” Yet, the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) estimates that 28 million homes are at risk because they either don’t have smoke alarms or their smoke alarms do not work, mostly due to dead or missing batteries. A working smoke alarm can make the difference in whether you have the critical extra seconds to safely escape. Energizer and the International Association of Fire Chiefs (IAFC) have worked for decades to change those numbers with the Change Your Clock Change Your Battery® program, and this fall they are continuing that work with firefighters across the country bringing the total number of batteries donated to 5 million.


The message is simple, and the habit can be lifesaving. For 26 years, the Change Your Clock Change Your Battery program has been dedicated to sharing the important reminder to replace the batteries in your home’s smoke and carbon monoxide detectors when you change your clocks for daylight saving time.

Families are encouraged to use the extra hour “gained” from the end of daylight saving time to review their home fire safety plans and remind their friends, family and neighbors of the life-saving habit of changing and testing smoke alarm batteries.
