Change Your Clock, Change Your Smoke Detector Batteries
October 2011 (WLS) -- ABC7Chicago teams up with Chicago firefighters for "Change your clock, change your smoke detector batteries" as part of Operation Save-a-Life fire safety campaign.
As part of its continuing Operation Save-A-Life fire safety campaign, ABC 7 will team up with the Chicago Fire Department and Loyola University Health Systems to get the word out on a simple life-saving tip, "Change Your Clock, Change Your Smoke Detector Batteries." ABC 7's Operation Save-A-Life fire safety and education campaign is now in its 8th year.
On Friday, November 4 from 4-6:00 pm, the Chicago Fire Department's Fire and EMS companies will be in service at Chicago area transportation centers distributing awareness flyers and 10,000 smoke detector batteries donated by Energizer. By being a visible presence in the community, the Chicago Fire Department is hoping to reinforce the critical message that on Sunday, November 6th it's time to "Change Your Clock AND Change Your Smoke Detector Batteries," which is key to saving lives.
Replacing home smoke detector batteries is a small and easy step that can mean the difference between life and death. Fresh batteries are critical to insuring smoke detectors work when fire breaks out. Nonetheless, changing those batteries is something people forget to do more often than not.
