Energizer Change Your Clock Change Your Battery Program + Giveaway

It’s hard to believe that in just a few weeks, we will be changing our clocks back from Daylight Saving Time. I’ve noticed that it’s already starting to get dark earlier. 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. Energizer and the International Association of Fire Chiefs (IAFC) are once again working with local fire departments to raise awareness on the importance of working smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors in helping to keep families safe in their homes.

Energizer Change Your Clock, Change Your Battery Program

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.

How often do you change the batteries in your smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors?

The Energizer Change Your Clock, Change Your Battery Program makes it easy for us to remember. Here’s a picture of MLB Hall-of-Famer Cal Ripkin participating in a neighborhood canvass with the Chicago Fire Department. Ripken, known as the Energizer Bunny of baseball for his record of consecutive games played (2,632!), has worked with Energizer for the past seven years to honor people and programs that celebrate positivity and make a difference.
