Please share the following important information with your boat and yacht insureds:

Please check the fire extinguishers on your boat or yacht as soon as possible and take the appropriate action if this recall applies to your equipment.
If this recall does not apply to your fire extinguishers, this still may be a good time to check all those extinguishers onboard your vessel and service as needed.
