It certainly was time to change the batteries in all of our smoke alarms. We’ve been woken up in the middle of the night on more than one occasion to that annoying beeping. Beep, Beep, Beep. My husband had to hunt down which one was beeping and then had to change the battery. One night it stopped beeping before he found it, so a few nights later he was woken again. AHHHH. He found the guilty fire alarm and changed the battery and decided to just change them all because they were all put in at the same time and who wants to be woken up a third time in the middle of the night because this is ALWAYS when the alarm goes off right?
While we’re talking about time to change, this year, the time change is on November 6 and we are asking for your help in getting the word out about Change Your Clock Change Your Battery. Energizer and the International Association of Fire Chiefs (IAFC) are asking parents to take a vital step to keep their kids safe at home – Change Your Clock Change Your Battery®. Plus you won’t be woken in the middle of the night by that annoying BEEP.
Throughout October, Energizer is inviting parents across the country to join the Energizer Bunny® Brigade on Facebook for a chance to win free smoke alarms and batteries for their home or a grand prize of a home fire safety makeover. It’s a fun way to get people thinking about an important topic – home fire safety – and sharing positivity within their communities. Thirty-eight percent of fatal fire injuries occur in homes without working smoke alarms, while 24 percent occur in homes in which at least one smoke alarm is present but fails to operate.*
