Alert: Major Fire Extinguisher Recall
On Nov. 2, 2017, the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission announced a major recall of certain Kidde fire extinguishers (Recall number 18-022).
“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.”
Since many bus manufacturers and bus dealers, including Carpenter Bus Sales, installed these particular fire extinguishers, we have been asked to notify bus buyers – those who have bought buses from us and those who have bought buses from other dealers – of the recall.
If your bus has one of these particular fire extinguisher, Kidde will replace it at no cost to you. To find out if your fire extinguisher qualifies for replacement and how to get your replacement, visit contact Kidde toll-free at 855-271-0773 from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. ET Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. ET Saturday and Sunday, or online at www.kidde.com and click on “Product Safety Recall.”
