9V Smoke Detector Battery Program
Nearly 1 out of every 5 smoke alarms found in homes throughout the United States fails to qualify as 'functioning' due to dead or missing batteries. At AtBatt.com we have taken it upon ourselves to help remedy this extremely serious issue.
No purchase is necessary and we will gladly pay for the shipping of the battery. Simply write a letter telling us that you qualify for this program, include your return address, and we will ship you a 9 volt alkaline battery and smoke detector awareness guide. Together we can do our part to reduce the unnecessary amount of deaths that result from missing or faulty batteries in smoke alarms throughout the country.
The Shocking Facts
Study after study shows that each year hundreds of people fall victim to fires in their home, the majority of which could have been avoided had functioning smoke alarms been present at the time of the fire.
“On average, home fires kill 540 children, 14 and under each year.”
-National Fire Protection Association (NFPA)
“Hundreds of fatalities occur every year when individuals neglect to ensure their smoke detectors have fresh batteries.”
- Chief Larry J. Groud, President of the International Association of Fire Chiefs
“96 percent of American homes have at least one smoke alarm, 19 percent of those detectors are not working, mostly due to missing or dead batteries.”
- National Fire Protection Association (NFPA)
9V Batteries for Fire Departments
If your Fire Department is planning an open house or community outreach program in the near future, we would like to donate 9V alkaline batteries to the senior citizens or economically disadvantaged citizens of your local communities. We will allocate 1,000 9v batteries for donations each month, so please call us and plan ahead.
