ATLANTA FIRE DEPARTMENT DISTRIBUTES COUNTERFEIT SMOKE ALARMS!

Atlanta, Georgia - The Atlanta Fire Department became unwitting participants in a scam to distribute smoke alarms with counterfeit UL Listing labels to residents of this community and are now involved in recalling the units.  If you're a resident who may have received one, please ensure you read this important notice from the Consumer Product Safety Council.

 

WE CELEBRATE 100! (FAQS, THAT IS!)

Vancouver, B. C. - It's official! The Fire Protection Technicians Network posted our 100th FAQ on April 28th, 2011, thanks to a question from Bruce Hawthorne at Ontario Power Generation.

 

GLOBE SPRINKLER RECALL - JUNE 1st, 2011 DEADLINE APPROACHING

Washington, D.C. - The deadline for claiming assistance from the manufacturer in replacing recalled Globe Model “J” sprinkler heads is fast approaching.  Property managers and building owners that employ these units are entitled to receive free replacement heads under the recall initiative.  After June 1, 2011, the entire replacement cost will have to be borne by the building owners.  It is absolutely imperative that fire equipment service companies ensure none of the sprinkler systems in their care employ sprinkler heads that are the subject of this recall.  Failure to recognize this could very well put you "on the hook".  For more information, consult our Bulletins Page!
