Smoke Alarms and Carbon Monoxide Alarms: Changing Requirements and Public Safety Messaging

Disabled smoke alarms have long been a serious safety issue for the fire service. Recent changes to UL’s smoke alarm standard, UL 217, are driving changes to the industry to reduce these false alarms due to normal cooking conditions.

This webinar will discuss these new performance requirements and changes to testing for carbon monoxide alarms. We will also discuss public safety messaging to assist the fire service in public messaging.
