Eastside Fire & Rescue and retailers in Issaquah and elsewhere offer free batteries Saturday as part of the Change Your Clock Change Your Battery campaign.

The effort is part of a national campaign to urge people to adopt a lifesaving habit: change smoke detector and carbon monoxide detector batteries at the same time to change clocks from daylight-saving time each fall. Remember to change clocks before bedtime Saturday.

People can receive free nine-volt batteries at participating stores from 4-5:30 p.m. Saturday until the free batteries run out.

Find free batteries at the following stores:

  • Ace Hardware — 330 Main Ave. S., North Bend
  • Bartell Drugs — 526 228th Ave. N.E., Sammamish
  • Bartell Drugs — 5700 E. Lake Sammamish Parkway S.E., Issaquah
  • QFC — 4570 Klahanie Drive S.E., Klahanie
  • QFC — 31722 Eugene St., No. 1, Carnation
  • QFC — 2902 228th Ave. S.E., Sammamish
  • The Home Depot — 6200 E. Lake Sammamish Parkway S.E., Issaquah

Look for firefighters at several grocery store locations, as they spread the message and urge families to make a simple, lifesaving change.
