Kidde Fire Extinguisher Recall

The Walter Kidde Company has announced a recall of 134 models of their fire extinguishers. The Coast Guard advises everyone who owns a Kidde extinguisher to check it to see if it has been recalled. The recalled models can fail to activate in an emergency. Details on the recall can be found on Safe Boating Resources/Product Recalls section of the web site.

We've received the unit patches authorized at the 25 October flotilla meeting. They will be distributed at the January flotilla meeting.
