WHY: To save lives and prevent needless injuries in St. Louis, the St. Louis Fire Department has joined forces with Energizer for the "Change Your Clock, Change Your Battery" campaign. The program urges everyone to adopt a simple, lifesaving habit, change your smoke alarm batteries when changing clocks back to standard time each fall.
The St. Louis Fire Department will conduct a smoke alarm battery blitz on Saturday, Nov. 3. Firefighters and volunteers from Energizer will be going door-to-door installing batteries in residential smoke alarms. In addition to door-to-door canvassing, firefighters will host two safety events where they will share life-saving information with the community.
Changing smoke alarm batteries at least once a year is one of the most effective ways to reduce tragic fire deaths and injuries. Additionally, test smoke alarms at least monthly.
City residents in need of a smoke alarm may contact the St. Louis Fire Department, Monday through Friday between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. at (314) 533-3406.
