For me, 2013 has flown by. In a couple days we will be changing those clocks and adjusting to the new routine. CAN YOU BELIEVE IT? It feels like just yesterday we were springing ahead! I was reminded by my friends at Energizer that it’s also that time of year when Energizer, the International Association of Fire Chiefs, and fire departments nationwide join 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. This is the 26th year for the annual program and the message is still an important one. Having a husband that is a paramedic, I hear first hand the things that families go through when a tragedy happens.
Take a look at this statistic- 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.
CONCLUSION-If your smoke Detector doesn’t have FUNCTIONAL batteries, it can’t warn you and your family of the serious situation, so when YOU CHANGE THOSE CLOCKS ALSO CHANGE YOUR BATTERIES! It saves precious minutes you need to get out and that means saved lives!!
