Energizer - Change Your Clock Change Your Battery + Family Safety Kit Giveaway

I have always had fire safety in the back of my mind.  Even when I was little, I had various routes mapped out in my house - just in case I needed to get out if there was a fire.  Energizer sent us a Family Safety Kit with many items to help keep my mind at ease.  The time changed this weekend, which means Energizer, the International Association of Fire Chiefs, and fire departments nationwide joined forces for the Change Your Clock Change Your Battery® program to raise awareness of the importance of working smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors in helping to keep families safe in their homes.

I was astounded by some of the facts I learned from this program. 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.  In order to remember to keep your smoke alarms in good working order, change the batteries when you change the clock.

If you didn't change the batteries in your smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors, I encourage you do to so today.  Visit the Energizer Facebook page and click on the fire safety tab for fire safety tips, a home escape plan that you can download and draw your family’s home escape plan, as well as a coloring and activity sheet.

Win It
