#PoweringSafety with the Energizer Bunny!

Hi friends and family,

Abuela de Miami wants to make sure you change the BATTERIES on your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors when you change your clocks one hour back on November 2nd. I recently had the opportunity of personally meeting the Energizer Bunny during a stop he made at the Home Depot Store in Little Havana where the City of Miami Fire-Rescue where sharing fire safety tips with the local community.

The Energizer Bunny shared 7 great tips to ensure that you and your family are protected:

1. Count Your Smoke Alarms, Be sure there is at least one smoke alarm less than ten years old installed on every level of your home, including one in every bedroom and outside of each sleeping area.
2. Change Your Smoke Alarm and Carbon Monoxide Detector Batteries. The International Association of Fire Chiefs (IAFC) and fire experts nationwide encourage people to change smoke alarm and carbon monoxide detector batteries annually. An easy way to remember to do so is to change the batteries in your smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors when you change your clocks back to standard time November 2.
3. Check Your Smoke Alarms and Carbon Monoxide Detectors. After inserting a fresh battery in each smoke alarm and carbon monoxide detector, push the safety test button to make sure alarms are in proper-working condition. Conduct
this test monthly. Never disconnect your smoke alarm battery! Remember that a “chirping” alarm is a signal it needs a fresh battery.
4. Clean Your Smoke Alarms and Carbon Monoxide Detectors. Ensure your smoke alarms’ and carbon monoxide detectors’ sensitivity by cleaning them each month of dust and cobwebs.
5. Replace Your Smoke Alarms. The International Association of Fire Chiefs (IAFC) recommends replacing smoke alarms every 10 years and having a combination of both ionization and photo electric smoke alarms to keep you alert to all types of home fires.
6. Change Your Flashlight Batteries. Keep flashlights with fresh batteries at your
bedside for help in finding the way out and signaling for help in the event of a fire.
7. Get the Whole Family Involved. Once smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors are installed and have fresh batteries, you should make sure family members, children in particular, know what the alarms and detectors sound like and what to do should they go off.
