Welcome to the Change Your Clock Change Your Battery® information center. Here you will find everything you need to participate in the 2012 program. These documents are meant for you to use and customize based on the needs of your department.
For 25 years, Energizer, the International Association of Fire Chiefs ("IAFC") and more than 6,400 fire departments nationwide have worked tirelessly to remind people of the simple, life-saving habit of changing and testing the batteries in smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors when setting the clocks back from daylight-saving time.
Please use the materials contained here and join us in sharing this potentially life-saving information with your community and local media. Energizer will donate a limited number of batteries to fire departments nationwide for distribution to community members that are at high risk for home fires. Fire departments often use these batteries and materials below for neighborhood canvasses, community events and home visits.
There are numerous ways to become involved in the 25th anniversary of the Change Your Clock Change Your Battery® program this fall. These are simple suggested activities. Feel free to use any of them, or perhaps develop your own local program. This kit is designed to help you implement a program that reflects the needs of your community. It contains step-by-step instructions to help host your own activities, as well as sample communication tools.
