On November 3rd, remember to test and change your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors when you change your clock back from Daylight Saving Time.
The message is simple, and the habit can be lifesaving. For 26 years, Energizer’s Change Your Clock Change Your Battery program has been dedicated to sharing this important reminder.
Together, Energizer and the IAFC are working to combat some alarming statistics:
- Thirty-eight percent of fatal fire injuries occur in homes without working smoke alarms.
- Twenty-four 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 has donated over 5 million batteries through the Change Your Clock Change Your Battery program.
