Lombard Fire Department reminds us to Change Your Clock Change Your Battery

Daylight-saving time begins Sunday, March 13, (2:00 a.m.) and marks the 28th anniversary of the Change Your Clock Change Your Battery® (CYCCYB) program.

Changing smoke alarm and carbon dioxide detector batteries at least once a year, testing those alarms and reminding others to do so are some of the simplest, most effective ways to reduce tragic deaths and injuries. The Lombard Fire Department reminds residents that this one simple step can help save their lives and the lives of those around them. Additionally, the International Association of Fire Chiefs recommends that smoke alarms in homes should be replaced every 10 years and having both ionization and photo electric smoke alarms are best to alert people to all types of home fires.

“Eighty percent of child fire fatalities occur in homes without working smoke alarms,” says Lombard Fire Marshal Chuck Riforgiate. “It’s a tragic statistic that could be reduced by adopting the simple habit of the Change Your Clock Change Your Battery program.” For more information about fire safety please visit www.villageoflombard.org/firesafety. This program is sponsored by International Association of Fire Chiefs and Energizer, which reminds us to change and test the batteries in our smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors.
