Duracell programYou've set those clocks back an hour this weekend (and hopefully enjoyed an extra hour of sleep), but did you also replace the batteries in your smoke alarms?

Duracell is celebrating the 25th anniversary of its Change Your Clock, Change Your Battery Campaign, which offers fire departments tips and tools for encouraging communities to swap out the old batteries for new ones. The program includes an array of downloadable materials, including public service announcements and fire statistics developed by NFPA. Energizer is also donating a limited number of batteries to departments in high-risk areas.

Don't forget to also check out NFPA's extensive information on smoke alarms, including various reports and fact sheets.
