Kidde Issues Fire Extinguisher Recall

Please know that none of the university provided fire extinguishers are affected by this recall. However; if a personal fire extinguisher was purchased and brought to the university, be aware that these fire extinguishers are being recalled due to plastic handle models failing to discharge and nozzles detaching.

It is advised to remove theses recalled extinguishers and request a university issued replacement if needed. Personal extinguishers should not be brought to the University for use in an emergency. The university has a fire extinguisher program that is available to provide the appropriate type of extinguisher that will be maintained and serviced as needed.
