Fire officials remind residents about the Kidde smoke and CO detector recall
Gravenhurst fire officials are reminding you to keep your family safe this holiday season by checking your smoke and CO detectors.
Recently, Health Canada sent out a recall for the Kidde Nighthawk smoke and co combo detectors that were manufactured between 2004 and 2011.
Both the battery-powered version and the hard-wired version can stop chirping after the batteries have been replaced after seven years or the power has been unplugged and replaced.
Gravenhurst Fire Prevention Officer Rob King says a smoke and CO detector is your early warning that something is wrong and you need to get out of the building.
If you believe you have one of these models you should test it out, if it fails to chirp you can contact Kidde to have it replaced.
