Daylight Savings Time ends on Sunday - Don't forget to Change Your Clock and Change Your Battery with Energizer this Sunday!

1:46 AM Posted by Kimberly@PrettyPinkMomma


This Sunday, November 7th, its time to Fall Back and set our clock one hour back.  I think that next to Christmas and my birthday this is my FAVORITE day of the year.  For this tired mom there is no better gift than an extra hour of sleep.  November 7th, also marks the 23rd anniversary of the International Association of Fire Chiefs and Energizer's campaign, Change Your Batter Change Your Life, which reminds us all that when we change our clocks its also a great idea to replace the batteries in our smoke detectors as well.

I feel that with the holidays quickly approaching that this time of year its really important to pay attention to fire safety in your home.  Many of us have candles burning, Christmas lights and other potential hazards during the holidays.  Faulty or old wiring on Christmas tree lights can easily start a fire so it's really important that your smoke detector is working properly so that you can be alerted.  A former classmate of mine and his girlfriend died because he didn't have batteries in his smoke alarm in his apartment when his Christmas tree caught on fire while they were sleeping.  I can't help but think that if the smoke detector was working it could have saved their lives.
According to the National Fire Prevention Association 40% of fatal fire injuries occur in homes without working smoke alarms, while 23% occur in homes in which at least one smoke alarm is present but fails to operate.  Taking a minute to check or change your batteries can save your life or your family's lives.  Even though 96% of American homes have smoke alarms, many do not have one that works because of missing or worn-out batteries.


Each year, Energizer donates 200,000 batteries to help local fire departments nationwide. This year everyone has the chance to help double the donations, up to 400,000 batteries. Participation is easy. Visit the CYCCYB tab on the Energizer Bunny® Facebook page, www.facebook.com/energizerbunny, and pledge to change your smoke alarm batteries, share the life-saving Change Your Clock Change Your Battery message with others and create your family’s home escape plan so you have an exit plan in place. Each action will trigger a donation of batteries.




To encourage your participation to pledge and help spread the word Energizer is offering ONE lucky Pretty Pink Momma reader a First Alert smoke alarm, along with a 2-pack of 9volt Energizer® Max® batteries



How to Enter:  Giveaway is now closed.  Visit the Energizer Bunny® Facebook page, and pledge to change your smoke alarm batteries then comment on this post letting me know that you made the pledge.  Giveaway open to US only.
