The OMFPOA Executive would like to thank Daniel Marra, Fire Prevention Inspector with Richmond Hill Fire & Emergency Services for sharing the following with our citizens and Fire Prevention Personnel through our website.

_____________________________________________________________________

I was asked to share this information with the group. I conducted an inspection today and found a carbon monoxide alarm with no listing.  The tenant informed me that they had purchased the carbon monoxide alarm on Amazon approximately 1 week ago.

Please see the following links:

1. https://www.amazon.ca/Delling-Monoxide-Detection-Electronic-Equipment/dp/B0789YMVTH/ref=asc_df_B075QT841Q/?tag=googleshopc0c-20&linkCode=df0&hvadid=292947999281&hvpos=1o2&hvnetw=g&hvrand=10390935295585428548&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=&hvdev=c&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=9000784&hvtargid=pla-570838312709&th=1

The above link takes you to Amazon where you can purchase a carbon monoxide alarm that is has no listing.

2.  https://www.consumerreports.org/carbon-monoxide-alarms/consumer-reports-rates-off-brand-carbon-monoxide-alarms-purchase/

The above link takes you to Consumer Reports website that shows “off brand” non-listed carbon monoxide alarms being tested and failing to detect carbon monoxide.
