Change Your Clock, Change Your Battery {Prize Pack Giveaway}

It’s hard to believe that in just a few weeks, we will be changing our clocks back from Daylight Saving Time.  This year the time change is on November 4 and it also marks the 25th anniversary of the annual Change Your Clock Change Your Battery® program.  Working smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors are so important in helping to keep families safe in their homes so make sure that you change the batteries in your smoke alarms when you change your clock.

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.

ENERGIZER SWEEPSTAKES:

From October 11 through November 4, 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 {each valued at over $150} per day for 25 days.

GIVEAWAY:

One reader will win a Family Safety Kit complete with a reusable grocery tote containing:

·         One 2-pack of Energizer® MAX® Batteries (9v) with Power Seal Technology – Dependable, powerful performance for the devices that help keep your family safe; now hold their charge when stored for up to 5 years

·         One Energizer® Weatheready® Safety Light – Waterproof flashlight powered by AA, AAA or C cell batteries; includes safety whistle and imprinted preparedness checklist

  1. In the past we have always changed them on New Years Day(easy to remember), but,
    for some unknown reason my husband changed them all yesterday.

  2. We change our smoke detector batteries as needed. I think the lastone went out a few weeks ago. They chirp until we change them!

  3. It’s been a while since I changed the smoke detectors, but I”m planning on doing it this weekend :) jenniferpeaslee at gmail dot com
