Daylight Saving Time Can Save Lives!

October 31, 2009 ·

Fall back

Twenty years ago, the people from Energizer Batteries and the nation’s firefighters came up with an idea that likely has saved thousands of homes and perhaps as many lives!

The idea connected two unrelated activities: changing clocks for Daylight Saving Time and changing the batteries in smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors.  It’s a sad fact that approximately 80 percent of fire deaths results from fires in homes without working smoke alarms.

Don’t forget to turn your clocks BACK one hour at 2:00 a.m. on Sunday morning, November 1st this year!

Remember the old saying, “Spring Forward, Ball Back”.
