Keep Customers Safe With a Daylight Savings Battery Change

This Fall you can help business managers across the country make a potentially life-saving decision.

Sunday, November 3rd was the annual “Fall Back” Daylight Savings Time, marking the day where homes and businesses across the country are urged to change the batteries in their smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors. It is strongly suggested that home and business owners use Daylight Savings Time to do this, as the recommended schedule for testing detectors and changing batteries is twice a year, and with our busy lives, having something to remind us is always helpful!

Did you know that, according to the National Fire Protection Association, businesses and other nonhome suffered nearly 2,000 fire-related injuries and fatalities in 2011, and $2.8 billion in property damage? The risks are real, but the solution is simple: Change and test your batteries, and remind your customers to do the same.

To do your part, you can assist your customers in selecting a trusted battery brand that will respond when it’s needed should the unthinkable happen. Duracell is the #1 trusted brand of battery for contractors, first responders, educators, electricians and healthcare professionals– if you think of everything a battery powers in those fields, that adds up to a pretty trustworthy testimonial to reliability!
