HARRISBURG, Pa. (Nov. 30) – The Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission (PFBC) is alerting boaters to check their boat’s fire extinguisher to see if it’s one of nearly 40 million Kidde brand fire extinguishers which have been recalled. The recall involves 134 different models.

“Most boaters are preparing their boats for winter storage, so this is a good time to check the fire extinguisher to see if it’s been recalled,” said Col. Corey Britcher, Director of the PFBC Bureau of Law Enforcement. “Fire extinguishers are critical safety equipment. It is imperative that boaters make sure their fire extinguishers are safe to operate.”
