Change Your Clocks And Your Batteries {Giveaway}

(Disclosure: I received a home safety kit but all thoughts are my own.)

Don’t forget that tonight you have to change your clocks back! While you are doing that you should also make sure to change the batteries in your smoke detectors.

Did you know, 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? It is so important to change the batteries because a working smoke alarm can make the difference in whether you and your family have the critical extra seconds to safely escape or not.

With the extra hour “gained” from the end of daylight saving time it might be a good time to review your home fire safety plans also. Energizer’s Facebook page has coloring pages, escape plan grids, and fire safety tips you can go over with your family.


One reader will win a Family Safety Kit complete with a reusable grocery tote containing: one 16-pack Energizer® MAX® AA Batteries years, one 1-pack of Energizer® MAX® 9 volt batteries, one Energizer® Weatheready® LED Safety Light flashlight, and one Kidde Battery-Operated Combination Carbon Monoxide and Smoke Alarm. {$70 value}

  2. When our son was born we purchased the smoke alarms with the 10 year lithium batteries so we just check those regularly. Our carbon dioxide detectors are plugged in so we just check those regularly as well.
