Energizer Smoke Alarm Giveaway


Fire Facts
  •  96% of American homes have at least one smoke alarm, but 19% of all homes do not have at least one working smoke alarm, mostly due to missing or dead batteries.
  •  Nuisance activations were the leading cause of disabled smoke alarms. Cooking fumes and steam can cause a smoke alarm to sound. Nuisance alarms can be prevented by moving the smoke alarm farther from kitchens or bathrooms. A chirping smoke alarm means the battery is dying.
  •  On average, home fires kill 540 children ages 14 and under each year
  •  Children ages 5 and under are 1.5 times as likely as the population as a whole to die in home fires.
  •  Seniors age 75 and older are three times more likely to die in a home fire.
  •  11 p.m. to 7 a.m. are the peak alarm times for home fire deaths – when people tend to be asleep and the house is likely to be dark.
  •  Approximately every 3 hours a home fire death occurs somewhere in the nation.
  •  40% of home fire deaths result from fires in homes without working smoke alarms.
  •  Only 23% of U.S. families have developed and practiced a home fire escape plan to ensure they could escape quickly and safely. Developing a family emergency escape plan can be crucial to everyone’s safety.
  •  Smoke alarms don't last forever. They should be replaced at least every 10 years.


Carbon Monoxide Facts
  • Carbon monoxide is sometimes called the “the silent killer.” It is colorless, odorless and tasteless. The National Safety Council reports that almost 700 people die each year as a esult of unintentional poisoning by gases or vapors in non-fire situations. Carbon monoxide was involved in the majority of these deaths.
Flashlight Facts
  •  In a study of 1997-1998 fatal home candle fires, candles were used for light in the absence of electrical power in one-third of the incidents.
  • Candles are the third leading cause of injuries from home fires, following cooking and heating.
  •  When your power goes out, use flashlights instead of candles.
  •  Use the time change to check the batteries in your flashlights.
 
For twenty-three years, Energizer, the International Association of Fire Chiefs (I-A-F-C) and thousands of fire departments nationwide have worked together to encourage everyone to adopt the life-saving Change Your Clock Change Your Battery habit of changing and testing smoke alarm batteries with each fall time change. This is so important because having a working smoke alarm an cut the risk of dying in reported home structure fires in half as they can often provide critical extra seconds needed to get out of your home safely.


Each year, Energizer donates 200,000 batteries to help local fire departments nationwide. This year everyone has the chance to help double the donations, up to 400,000 batteries. 

One (1) of my readers will win  a First Alert smoke alarm, along with a 2-pack of 9volt Energizer Max batteries.
