Change Batteries in Smoke Detectors Nov 1st
For 28 years, Energizer® has partnered with the International Association of Fire Chiefs (IAFC) to keep families safe through the Change Your Clock Change Your Battery® program. Energizer® and the IAFC work to remind people of the simple, life-saving habit of changing and testing the batteries in smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors when setting the clocks back for daylight-saving time
The National Fire Protection Association reports that 71% of smoke alarms which failed to operate had missing, disconnected or dead batteries, making it important to take this time each year to check your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors.
Energizer® is committed to educating people about fire safety at home, which is demonstrated each fall when Energizer®, retailers and fire stations across the country help people learn about fire safety and remind them to change their batteries when they change their clocks back.
