Kidde Recalls Combination Smoke/CO Alarms

Name of product: Kidde NightHawk combination smoke/carbon monoxide (CO) alarms

Safe Neighborhood Campaign

Unless you see a fire start, you can only find out there is a fire if you’re awake to smell the smoke. If you happen to be asleep, a smoke alarm is the only way to save your life and the lives of everyone sleeping in your home. Smoke alarms are intended to sound an alarm when they sense smoke. Smoke rises so place the alarms near the ceiling or directly onto the ceiling. Make sure there is a smoke alarm on every level of the home, inside each bedroom, and outside each sleeping area. Always follow the manufacturer’s recommendations for installation and lifespan of smoke alarms.

Grand Traverse Metro Fire Department is invested into helping to ensure that all residents have properly working smoke alarms. Find out how we can help!
