Jim Mackie, is a Dedicated “Life-Safety” Professional. It was a “Review” of one of Jim’s C O Detector / Alarm “Test Programs” that first brought to my attention an OBVIOUS SENSOR PROBLEM with the “NEW” Models of the Kidde-Nighthawk C O Alarms that had just hit the Marketplace in October, 1998. After the “Red Flags” were raised by this first review, Jim did additional Concentrated Testing on these New Models, which Revealed a 100% Failure Rate. We then had Additional “Testing done on by Test Labs in B.C.,Canada, and Calif., … before taking our Data to the U. S. Consumer Product Safety Commission to PUSH for the Immediate Recall of these Seriously Defective C O Alarms.


Jim’s Dedication to Excellence Undoubtedly SAVED THOUSANDS of LIVES ! ! !
