It is important to follow these steps carefully when programming your First Alert Wireless Interconnect smoke detectors. TO PROGRAM FIRST ALARM: 1. Insert 2 AA batteries. Alarm will say: "Welcome, First Alert® Smoke Alarm." It will then say "No location programmed" if this is the first time the device has been activated, or "[Location, example: "Basement"] location programmed" when changing batteries. The Wireless Interconnect detector will then say "To select location, press and hold test button now." 2. Press & Hold Test Button if you would like to program the location or change the location of the alarm. Release button after alarm responds. Alarm will say: "To save location, press and hold test button after location is heard." The Wireless Interconnect smoke detector will list locations. 3. After you hear the location of where you are placing the Alarm, Press & Hold the Test Button. Alarm Will Say: "[Location, example: "Basement"] location saved." If no location is chosen: "No location saved." Your Alarm has now been programmed for the location of your choice.
ADDING AND LINKING ADDITIONAL Wireless Interconnect ALARMS NOTE: To create your integrated smoke detector system, steps 1 through 3 below need to be completed within two minutes. If more than two minutes pass, the green power LED will stop blinking. Simply open the battery drawer of the second detector and repeat steps 1 through 3. 1. Insert the batteries into the battery drawer of the next detector. DO NOT CLOSE THE DRAWER. 2. Press and hold the test button and then close the battery drawer. 3. Once you hear the unit chirp, release the test button. The green power LED will start to blink indicating the Wireless Interconnect detector is waiting for program data from one of the other existing Wireless Interconnect alarms that are already set up.
Fire extinguishers are classified by fire type. The A, B and C rating system defines the kinds of burning materials each fire extinguisher is designed to fight. The numbers in front of the A, B, or C indicate the rating for size of the fire the unit can extinguish. Using the wrong type of fire extinguisher can do more harm than good. Make sure you understand which fire extinguisher to use on each class of fire.
Class A rating: The agent/powder is suitable for fighting small fires involving wood, paper, cloth, rubber, and some plastics.
Class B rating: The agent/powder is suitable for fighting small fires involving grease, oil, gasoline, kerosene, and other flammable liquids.
Class C rating: The agent/powder is suitable for fighting small fires in "live" electrical equipment.
This test is not intended to replace a professional inspection by an accredited commercial laboratory. The lead test kit will detect high levels that exceed government guidelines but no guarantees are intended or implied.
Other toxic metals can give a positive response. If copper or bismuth is present, it is indistinguishable from lead in this test. This is of little concern as these elements are not usually present in the items that can be tested with the kit. If the items were properly manufactured, they would not release these toxic metals in amounts that would give a positive response using this testing procedure.
