CLOSED: Getting Ready For The Holidays: Energizer Change Your Clock Change Your Battery Giveaway


Change Your Clock Change Your Battery®
Win a smoke alarm and Pack of 9volt Batteries



Pass it on: Use the Extra Hour to Remind Your Friends, Family and Neighbors to Change Their Smoke Alarm Batteries and Make a Positive Change in Your Community


Daylight-saving time ends Sunday, Nov. 7, and marks the 23rd anniversary of the Change Your Clock Change Your Battery® program, created by Energizer and the International Association of Fire Chiefs (IAFC), which reminds people to check and change the batteries in their smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors during the fall time change. This message is simple, and the habit can be lifesaving. Forty percent of fatal fire injuries occur in homes without working smoke alarms, while 23 percent occur in homes in which at least one smoke alarm is present but fails to operate.

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 22 years, Energizer has donated more than four million batteries to local fire departments. This year, people have an opportunity to get involved in a very simple way to help increase the donation.

In an effort to reach more community members nationwide, Energizer, as part of its new Now That’s Positivenergy™ program, is enlisting people across the country to help double the donation of batteries to local fire departments. When people visit the CYCCYB tab on the Energizer Bunny® Facebook page,(www.facebook.com/energizerbunny), they can send a Change Your Clock Change Your Battery reminder to their friends to trigger a battery donation. In addition, people can make an online pledge to change the batteries in their smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors or develop a home escape plan online to help increase the number of batteries the company donates this year, up to 400,000 batteries.


“Each year, thousands of lives are forever changed due to the devastating effects of a home fire, especially when home fire fatalities are a factor,” said Chief Jack E. Parow, EFO, president and chairman of the board of the International Association of Fire Chiefs. “For that reason alone, Energizer’s donation of batteries has become a vital and necessary component to keeping communities across the nation safe and sound. A working smoke alarm is a family’s best defense for surviving a home fire.”

This year, the public can play an important role in helping to spread the life-saving message. “For 23 years, Energizer, the IAFC and more than 6,200 fire departments have partnered to educate communities on the importance of home fire safety and having working smoke alarms,” said Jim Olsen, Vice President of Marketing for Energizer North America. “By asking for the public’s help this year, we hope to further raise awareness of the life-saving message, while also increasing the battery donation to help more community members in need avoid devastating home fire fatalities.”




Changing your batteries is essential & only takes a few minutes & dollars. Many lives can be saved by this simple act of having a functioning Fire Alarm. This would also be a great donation to charity/food banks for people who can not afford a fire alarm & batteries.

One lucky person will win a smoke alarm and pack of 9volt batteries
