I know several people who have been impacted by a home fire.  My husband had a rental property when we first got married that burned down.  I remember getting the phone call in the middle of the night.  Thankfully, no one was home or injured in the fire.  We drove over and I was shocked by the sight.  It was the first time I had seen an active house fire and it was emotional.  I can’t imagine the feelings and devastation of seeing your own home destroyed.  Or the horror of an occupied home fire.

FireSafety_Infographic FINAL

Do you have a working smoke alarm in your home?  The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) estimates that 28 million homes are at risk because they either don’t have smoke alarms or their smoke alarms do not work, mostly due to dead or missing batteries. A working smoke alarm can make the difference in whether you have the critical extra seconds to safely escape.


For 26 years, Energizer and the International Association of Fire Chiefs (IAFC) have sponsored the Change Your Clock Change Your Battery program, dedicated to sharing the important reminder to replace the batteries in your home’s smoke and carbon monoxide detectors when you change your clocks for daylight saving time.

“All too often firefighters see firsthand the devastating effects on families whose homes don’t have working smoke detectors,” said Chief William Metcalf, President and Chairman of the Board of the International Association of Fire Chiefs. “Thanks to Energizer, more than 5 million batteries have been donated in communities across the country through this program.”

Energizer is donating 250,000 batteries this fall to fire departments across the country to distribute to families in their communities. Together, they will host Home Safety Days and neighborhood canvasses spanning throughout National Fire Prevention Month in October until the end of daylight saving time on Sunday, Nov. 3.

    I don’t have any friends or family who’ve been impacted by fire. However, I handled Property Insurance {Homeowner’s Policies] for many years and have had had quite a few clients who HAVE been impacted to varying degrees. No-one ever thinks it will happen to them, until it does. Smoke detectors actually make a great deal of difference. Thanks for the giveaway.

    When my Mum was a teenager, the kitchen in her home caught on fire. She has described to me many times how terrified she was watching the home burn. Thankfully, help was closely available and they only lost the kitchen, but she said it was the scariest thing that ever happened to her. We are very fire conscious in our home. Thanks for the great giveaway opportunity. Keep up the terrific blogging!

    Luckily, I only have one friend who has been affected by a house fire. It was a mobile home and a total loss. It was very rough on my friend and her family, it took forever for the insurance to pay out as well.
