ST. LOUIS, Mo. – 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.
“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. “A working smoke alarm is a family’s best defense for surviving a home fire.”
