A Public Advisory message from the Centre Hastings Fire Department on behalf of the Ontario Association of Fire Chiefs and Health Canada.
Health Canada is reminding Canadians to check for a recognized Canadian certification mark on the product when purchasing smoke or carbon monoxide (CO) alarms online or in-store. Products that do not have a recognized Canadian certification mark may not meet Canadian performance standards and could fail or operate incorrectly. This could pose a risk to consumers who may not be alerted to a fire or CO incident in their home.
