The best way to stay safe is to plan ahead. By doing small tasks every day and setting important reminders, you can teach safety and encourage your family to do the same. October is Fire Safety Month, and Energizerยฎ has launched “Change Your Clock, Change Your Battery.” The best reminder that I have for changing your batteries throughout your home (especially your smoke alarms!) is when the clocks change.

While I enjoy the fall season, I am not a big fan of changing the clocks. While some of you might not have to do so, many of us in America are gearing up to set our clocks back one hour on November 1st. What does this mean? Well, days are shorter. Dawn comes earlier. ย To get you ready for the big switch, I’m sharing this easy FREE printable for you to download. Daylight saving time ends at 2 a.m. Sunday, Nov. 1. Remember to turn your clocks back one hour either before you hit the hay or right when you wake up on Sunday morning.

Don’t forget to shop Target to pick upย Energizerยฎ MAXยฎ batteries for your alarm. We use the 9V ones.

Did you know that according to the National Fire Protection Association, 71% of non-functioning smoke alarms had missing, disconnected or dead batteries. The goal of this campaign is to remind youย to replace the batteries in yourย homeโ€™s smoke detectors when youย change yourย clocks for daylight savings . It’s a simple fix! On average, families have less than threeย minutes from the time the first smoke alarmย sounds to get out of the home. That’s a scary thought. So, educate yourself, your family, and spread awareness when you can!


Make sure that your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors are working properly to potentially save your life. Create a conversation with your children who can keep you accountable. One other tip to help keep your family accountable is to print out this simple 8 x 10 printable. Keep it in your household binder and encourage your children to help you fill it out! Assign your children the task of assisting you change the clocks that aren’t digital, and have them go one by one down the list.
