This week on TALK! with AUDREY: Daylight-saving time ends tomorrow, Sunday, November 4th, and marks the 25th anniversary of the Change Your Clock Change Your Battery® program, created by Energizer and the International Association of Fire Chiefs (IAFC), which reminds people to check, change and test the batteries in their smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors during the fall time change. FIRE CHIEF HANK CLEMMENSEN, President and Chairman of the International Association of Fire Chiefs shares fire safety tips  and life-saving reminders!

Some simple home fire safety tips to share with your family:

  • Practice smoke alarm maintenance for a simple, effective way to reduce home fire        deaths.
  • A simple reminder from Energizer and the International Association of Fire Chiefs: when you change your clocks, change and test the batteries in your smoke alarms. This can help save lives.
  • Test your smoke alarms monthly to make sure they are working.
  • Have at least one working smoke alarm on each level of your home.
  • Plan, discuss and practice a home escape route with your family in case of a fire.
  • Do not rely on your sense of smell to alert you to the danger of being trapped during a fire.
  • Do not ignore the chirping sound your smoke alarm makes when maintenance is required.
  • Keep fire-starting materials away from children, including lighters, matches, cigarettes, cigars and pipes.
  • Use flashlights rather than candles to light your home during power outages.
  • Portable space heaters need a three-foot clearance from anything that can burn and should be turned off when leaving your room or home. Carbon monoxide is sometimes called the “the silent killer.” It is colorless, odorless and tasteless.
