Itâ€™s getting to be that time of year againâ€¦ time to change the clocks back for daylight-saving time and itâ€™s also the perfect opportunity to adopt a life-saving habit â€“ changing the batteries in your smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors.Â This year, the time change is on November 6th.
So 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 your home or a grand prize of a home fire safety makeover. Itâ€™s a fun way to get people thinking about an important topic â€“ home fire safety â€“ and sharing positivity within their communities.
The message is simple, and the habit can be lifesaving. 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. By changing your batteries on an annual basis, you will have peace of mind in knowing that your alarms are up to date.
So join the Energizer Bunny Brigade today! I did!
