Did you know that the winter months are the deadliest season for home fires? It’s true. In fact, most fatal home fires happen in homes with no smoke alarm or no working alarm. PLUS, nearly five times as many Americans know the shelf life of a Twinkie than know the recommended operating life of a smoke alarm. (source: recent Kidde survey). What does all this mean? It’s time to make sure both you and your family know you Recipe For Safety This Winter with Kidde.
Kidde is here to help your family with it’s own #RecipeForSafety You can print out the above image as a starter for your family. Are you wondering where you can get some of the Ingredients listed? Look no further:
The Kidde Kitchen Fire Extinguisher (part # 21008173) is the only special purpose fire extinguisher that is UL-listed for residential cooking equipment.* The special proprietary nozzle design delivers the firefighting agent at a high volume and low velocity, which reduces the chance of the cooking oil splashing. The pressure gauge shows the unit is charged and ready for use. Additionally, its non-toxic and non-corrosive agent makes clean-up safe and easy.
711A Rating: What It Means
The Underwriter’s Laboratories (UL) 711A rating is the most current testing standard for residential cooking equipment, and is the only standard that tests an extinguisher’s performance on vegetable and peanut oil. Consumers typically use these types of oils when cooking on the stove. However, because this standard is so new, it does not translate to a traditional A, B, or C rating like other fire extinguishers.
711A Rating: Why It’s Important
A fire extinguisher tested to put out cooking oil fires safely and effectively in a residential kitchen offers the consumer added peace of mind. That’s why Kidde’s Kitchen Fire Extinguisher was designed to the 711A rating.
We have one on backorder ourselves and I personally can not wait till it gets here. If you know me at all you know my forte is not in the kitchen, but that doesn’t stop me from trying. Which means sometimes a disaster might happen like the grease fire of ’08. Luckily, Brian was home and helped me out. In the future I’ll use my Kidde Fire Extinguisher.
Kidde also offers both 2 story and 3 story Escape Ladders. Kidde escape ladders provide a simple, easy-to-store way to help ensure that you and your family get out safely in the event of a house fire. If you live in a two- or three-story home, we recommend that you have one ladder in every occupied room on floors above the main level. In fact, so does the National Fire Protection Association.
Combination alarms offer protection from two deadly threats in one unit. Combo alarms can save space, and you’ll only need to change and test batteries in one device rather than two. 10-year sealed battery alarms offer a variety of benefits to the millions of Americans who rely on continuous battery-powered smoke and carbon monoxide detection in their homes. The alarms are powered by sealed, long-life lithium batteries for 10 years (the life of the alarm), meaning they are always on.
