Officials with Windsor Fire are stressing the importance of using only approved smoke alarms and carbon monoxide alarms

During recent fire investigations throughout Ontario, investigators have found incidents where the smoke alarms and carbon monoxide alarms installed were not approved for use in Ontario.

Windsor Fire & Rescue Services wants to remind the public to check smoke alarms and carbon monoxide alarms to ensure the product has been tested to meet Canadian requirements prior to purchasing. The alarms should have an approved marking on the package and on the alarm.

Smoke alarms and carbon monoxide alarms sold in Canada shall comply with Underwriters Laboratory Canada (ULC) requirements, specifically CAN/ULC S531, Standard for Smoke Alarms.
