EEK! It’s almost time to change our clocks again – can you believe it?? On November 3rd it’s time to set our clocks back which means for our family it’s also time to change the batteries in our smoke detectors. Every year I partner with Energizer to promote the Change Your Clock Change Your Batteries campaign because it is SO SO SO important to have a working smoke detector (and carbon monoxide detector) in your house. Refreshing the batteries with it every November when you change your clocks is an easy way to remember it.
I personally know people who have lost their entire house due to fire, and when we lived in our first apartment the apartment directly above me had black smoke billowing out the windows due to faulty wiring – but no smoke detector was in place to alert us. It was VERY scary and could have been a LOT worse than it was. Just last year the house down the street from me about a block away burned down too. It’s a scary experience when you watch it happening first hand!! Did you know that 38% of fatal fire injuries come from houses that have no smoke detector and as many as 24% of them occur in homes where there IS a smoke detector but it’s not working properly. That’s a HUGE percent! Why have one if you aren’t going to make sure it’s working correctly!
