Change Your Clock, Change Your Battery Smoke Detector #giveaway

The contest is closed. The winner is

October is Fire Safety Awareness month. To promote awareness of the need for smoke detectors in all homes, Energizer has joined with the International Association of Fire Chiefs to create the Change Your Clock, Change Your Battery promotion.

Daylight saving time ends on Sunday, Nov. 6. As families change their clocks, it’s a good time also for families to review their home fire safety plans, starting with changing the batteries in their smoke and carbon monoxide detectors. Energizer and the International Association of Fire Chiefs are asking families across the country to join them in this year’s Change Your Clock Change Your Battery® campaign. 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.*

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 their home or a grand prize of a home fire safety makeover. It’s a fun way to get people thinking about an important topic – home fire safety – and sharing positivity within their communities.

Firefighters work tirelessly to help reduce the risk factors by educating their residents on the importance of having a working smoke alarm. In many communities, fire departments are able to distribute free batteries to citizens in need as a result of the Change Your Clock Change Your Battery® program. Over the past 23 years, Energizer has donated more than four million batteries to local fire departments. The Change Your Clock Change Your Battery® program is just one of the ways Energizer brings to life the company commitment to making a positive impact in communities across the country.

Win It!
Energizer is offering one lucky reader a smoke detector complete with batteries in honor of fire safety awareness month.

    In addition to regularly changing batteries, we test our smoke detectors periodically and hold “fire drills” about 2-3 times a year. It’s easy to keep batteries in the smoke detector…not so easy to know what to do when it goes off!

    Have a safe plan for your family and a place you all would meet in case of an emergency and make sure to practice it and not just talk about it.

    Smoke detectors and a fire escape plan is posted in the kitchen so everyone knows exactly what to do in case of emergency. We also have a fire extinguisher in the kitchen next to the stove. Thanks so much for hosting this great giveaway!

    I change the batteries with daylight saving time in the spring and fall. We also have a fire extinguisher and a fire plan to meet at the neighbors tree in case of a fire.

    I have little ones, so our best tip is to set off the alarm every now and then so they can hear what it sounds like. That way they recognize it and we can practice getting out.
