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:

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

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.
