Infographic: Smoke Alarms – Change Your Clock, Change Your Battery

Time for a few important fire prevention tips brought to us by the Energizer Bunny! On averages, families have less than three minutes from the time the first smoke alarm sounds to escape a fire. Almost 47% of reported home structure fires and more than half 54% of home structure fire deaths occur in the cooler months of November through March.

Changing smoke alarm batteries at least once a year, testing those alarms and reminding others to do the same are some of the simplest, most effective ways to reduce these tragic deaths and injuries.

Use the Extra Hour this year to remind family and friends to Change Their Smoke Alarm and Carbon Monoxide Detector Batteries and Make a Positive Change in Our Community.
