August 8, 2016 | By Renée Francoeur

August 8, 2016 – National Time & Signal has issued a recall involving about 3500 fire alarm pull stations as the pull handle can break when manually pulled and fail to activate the alarm system.

It is not known how many, if any, units made their way into Canada.

The red and white rectangular 541S pull stations have “National Time” printed on the bottom and batch code 0805 on a sticker inside the pull station.

Signal Communications, one of the product’s distributors, says it has received one report of the pull handle breaking and failing to activate during routine testing. No injuries have been reported.


Consumers should immediately contact National Time & Signal at 844-856-9177 or by email at recall@natsco.net to schedule a free inspection and repair. National Time & Signal notes it is contacting all purchasers of the recalled pull stations directly.

The product was sold exclusively at National Time & Signal and installed by electrical contractors for use in educational, residential and business facilities in the Michigan, U.S. area from October 2005 through April 2007 for about $25.

The fire alarm was manufactured in China.
