Bartell Drugs, Seattle Fire Department and Energizer Batteries team up for Change Your Clock Change Your Battery effort on October 24th

Seattle, WA, 2015-10-23 — /EPR Retail News/ — Bartell Drugs, the Seattle Fire Department and Energizer Batteries have teamed up for Change Your Clock Change Your Battery on Saturday, October 24th from 1-3 p.m. at Bartell Drugs’ Greenwood store located at 100 N 85th St.

The event will include appearances from local firefighters, family-friendly activities and educational materials in conjunction with National Fire Prevention Month.

Daylight savings time concludes Sunday, November 1—a time when residents are encouraged to change batteries in smoke detectors as they set their clocks back one hour. To support the effort, Bartell Drugs will offer savings on Energizer multipack 9-volt batteries at all 64 store locations.

The event will provide a fun environment for families and individuals to learn how they can take simple, preventative steps to protect their loved ones and home. According to the National Fire Protection Association, three out of five fatal fire injuries take place in homes without working smoke alarms. And 71 percent of smoke alarms that failed to operate had missing, disconnected or dead batteries.
