There are so many things that are in our busy schedules, from the kids school and activities to the everyday things that we have to get done, so when it comes to things like checking the fire alarms in your home and changing the batteries, that kind of thing can get overlooked. That is why I like programs like the Energizer Change Your Clock Change Your Battery. With Daylight Savings Time coming up, when you go to change your clock, this program reminds you to also go around and change out the batteries in your smoke detectors and alarms, that way, you can help keep your family safe. To learn more about this program, I went to my local fire station. I learned some interesting things about my own smoke detector that I did not know before, like that there is a expiration date on them. In the picture above, the Captain pointed out the date, and my detector shows January of 2013, which means that in 10 years, I need to change out my detectors. So aside from changing your batteries, while you are doing so, look at the dates that are highlighted in yellow, and if it has been 10 years or more since that date, then you will need to get a new detector. Another thing that I learned was the importance of having smoke detectors in the different rooms, like bedrooms, living areas, halls and kitchen. There was a lot that we all learned, and the kids enjoyed getting some great fire safety tips as well!
On top of the information, we all learned about the importance of checking our smoke detectors and changing the batteries when we go to change our clocks, I was also given some great holiday tips that I have put into a video to share with my readers!
Well to help my readers out with making sure their own smoke alarms are in good working condition and that they have the batteries needed to change out their old batteries with, the wonderful people from Energizer would like to give one of my readers the same prize pack I was sent, as pictured below!
