LAS VEGAS—When a fire alarm activates during a fire, the high-frequency sound it emits can be insufficient to alert some hearing impaired individuals or even just sound sleepers. But System Sensor has some new low frequency notification appliances that address that problem because they're easier for such people to hear, according to David George, the company's director of marketing communications. The low frequency sounders and sounder strobes, which were among products the St. Charles,...

Survey: Many in N.Y. unaware of new CO law

May 5, 2011Tess Nacelewicz

MEBANE, N.C.—About a year after a new carbon monoxide detector mandate in New York went into effect, a new survey has found that nearly half of New York families still don't know about the law, according to Kidde, a manufacturer of fire and CO safety products based here.

But a new survey conducted...
