Giveaway: Energizer Family Safety Kit

It's almost that time of the year again :( I know I hate it since the days seem to get shorter & colder which marks the end of the fun season for our family. So don't forget to change your clock on the 4th of Nov. plus it also marks the 25th anniversary of the annual Change Your Clock Change Your Battery program. Energizer and the International Association of Fire Chiefs (IAFC) are once again working with local fire departments nationwide to raise awareness on the importance of working smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors in helping to keep families safe in their homes. 

Did you know that 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.

How to get involved plus a chance to win some really cool prizes:

From October 11 through November 4, visit the Energizer Bunny Facebook page and click on the Fire Safety Info Tab. Here you will have the chance to enter a sweepstakes to win an additional Family Safety Kit. Energizer will be giving away one Family Safety Kit per day for 25 days. Contained in the kit, valued at more than $150 is:
· One reusable grocery tote
· Two Kidde Battery-Operated Combination Carbon Monoxide and Smoke Alarms
· One package of Energizer Advanced Lithium batteries
· One package of Energizer MAX Batteries (AA) with Power Seal Technology - Dependable, powerful performance for the devices that help keep your family safe; now hold their charge when stored for up to 10 years
· Two Energizer flashlights
· Two Energizer Flameless Wax Candles
· One Energizer Bunny Plush Bunny
 
On Monday, Oct. 1, just one week before the anniversary of the Great Chicago Fire that killed hundreds & devastated the city in 1871, the Energizer Bunny Brigade led by MLB Hall-of-Famer Cal Ripken Jr. “re-created” the O’Leary barn, where by legend, the fire started at an event on the grounds of the Chicago Water Tower, the only building to survive the fire. The story goes that Mrs. Catherine O’Leary’s cow kicked over a candle, starting an inferno that consumed 3.3 square miles of the city. But on this occasion, Ripken and Chicago firefighters demonstrated how advances and educational programs over the past century have made our communities safer so mass fire tragedies can be prevented.
“In the past 25 years, the number of home fire deaths has substantially decreased,” said Chief Hank Clemmensen, IAFC president and chairman of the board. . “That success is mostly thanks to the thousands of hours—every year for 25 years—that local fire departments have dedicated to improving the safety environment through technology, policy and, especially, public education efforts like the Change Your Clock Change Your Battery® program. But the world does not stand still, local fire department budgets are shrinking, many people still don’t have a basic baseline of protection from smoke alarms, and we must keep pace with changes in technology and the built environment, It’s still vital that homes be equipped with working smoke detectors in order to give families those critical extra seconds to escape.”
 
To help give more families those critical seconds, Energizer is honoring its 25th year by donating 250,000 batteries to fire departments across the country to distribute to local families in their areas and adopting 25 fire departments in 25 cities across the nation, who, in addition to batteries, will be equipped with a variety Energizer® family safety products for their department and to share in their communities. Together, they will host Home Safety Days and neighborhood canvasses spanning throughout National Fire Prevention Month in October until the end of daylight saving time on Sunday, Nov. 4.
 
Family Safety Kit complete with a reusable grocery tote containing:
- 2-pack of Energizer MAX Batteries (9v)
- Energizer Flameless Wax Candle
- Energizer Weatheready Safety Light
- Kidde Battery-Operated Combination Carbon Monoxide and Smoke Alarm
