Were Your Fire Extinguishers Recalled in Bedford, Mass.?
Last November, Kidde Fire Safety issued a recall on several models of fire extinguishers. We advise everyone check their fire extinguishers against the Kidde recall page to confirm that no recalled models remain in their facilities.
Bedford, MA: Check Extinguishers
The Kidde recall applies to certain models with plastic handles or push-button “pindicators”. Visit the recall page to verify whether or not your Kidde fire extinguishers are part of the recall.
Here are some other things to keep in mind regarding your equipment.
Fire extinguishers should be inspected and maintained on a regular basis. Facility managers and/or owners should inspect them every month, and a licensed company should be called in to inspect and maintain them annually.
Like any equipment, extinguishers only work properly when handled by someone who knows how to use them. Safety training in your facility should include teaching the proper use of extinguishers.
You could also call in a fire safety company to train all employees at once. Just remember to train new employees as they come on board as well.
