Make daylight saving life saving

For 25 years, the Change Your Clock Change Your Battery program (sponsored by Energizer and International Association of Fire Chiefs) has been dedicated to helping share the life-saving reminder to change the batteries in your home’s smoke and carbon monoxide detectors when you change your clocks for daylight saving time.

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 where at least one smoke alarm is present but fails to operate, frequently due to dead or missing batteries.

This Nov. 4, sharing the reminder to Change Your Clock Change Your Battery is a simple way to help protect neighbors and loved ones.
