Home For The Holidays: Energizer and First Alert Giveaway CLOSED!


With the holidays here and Christmas Trees up, one thing that everyone has to keep in mind is fire safety. Every year there is an estimated 250 house fires involving Christmas Trees and 170 involving holiday lighting nation wide. Do you have a plan set in place if a tragedy were to strike your home this holiday season? Do you have all of the equipment in place that you need if something were to happen? When was the last time you changed the batteries on your fire alarms?


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 aChange 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’sdonation 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.”

Extra Good in Your Neighborhood
One positive change residents are encouraged to make is to use the extra hour “gained” to remind their friends, family and neighbors of the life-saving habit of changing and testing smoke alarm batteries. The simple reminder is one of the easiest, most-effective ways to reduce tragic home fire deaths and injuries.
Secondly, you can spend your extra hour spreading good in your neighborhood. More than 80 percent of local fire departments are staffed by volunteers. Energizer and the IAFC are encouraging people to use their extra hour volunteering to make a change in their community.
“It’s about taking small steps together to make a big difference, from reminding each other to get in the habit of the Change Your Clock Change Your Battery® program to using our extra hours to make a difference in the community– Now That’s Positivenergy™,” Olsen said.


This holiday season, Energizer and First Alert would like to give one of my readers a First Alert Smoke Alarm  along with a 2-pack of 9volt Energizer® Max® batteries.
