As you may have read, over 2.7 Million fire extinguishers have been recalled by manufacturer Kidde. These extinguishers, which you can find more information and model numbers by following the link above, are all made with plastic handles and push buttons.
Harding Fire Protection does not use plastic-handled fire extinguishers, and in fact, years ago we removed these from our clients’ buildings and replaced them with metal-handled models. This is due to a problem we noticed with breaking handles on many of these extinguishers.
However, rest assured that we will be reviewing all of our clients’ inventories and immediately removing any recalled extinguishers.
We would like to remind everyone to please review the information provided in the recall and to check your home and vehicle fire extinguishers. These style of extinguishers are most often found in these locations.
If you have any questions, please call us at 416-292-0599.
