 The fire extinguishers can become clogged or require excessive force to discharge and can fail to activate during a fire emergency.  In addition, the nozzle can detach with enough force to pose an impact hazard.

You may have one in your Park Model, RV and/or Boat or Home.  If you have any of these extinguishers, you should immediately contact Kidde to request a free replacement fire extinguisher and for instructions on returning the recalled unit.  The recalled unit may not work properly in a fire emergency.

 Contact Kidde toll-free at (855)271-0773 from 8:30am to 5pm ET Monday through Friday, 9am to 3pm ET Saturday and Sunday, or visit and click on “Product Safety Recall” for more information.  Please help spread the word on this!

Tragedy can strike without a moment’s notice, and the Las Vegas shooting was proof that it is the blood already on the shelves that saves lives.  Donors came out in large numbers to replenish supplies following the tragedy; however, blood has a shelf life of just 42 days.  United Blood Services is urging donors to make and keep blood donation appointments throughout December to ensure that patients have an ample supple of lifesaving transfusions going into the holidays.


With this in mind, please make an appointment today by calling 1-877-UBS-HERO (827-4376).  Thank you!
