According to a statement today from the Cary Fire Department, they have asked us to make everyone aware of a fire hazard connected to a specific kind of surge protector, which is often installed with hearing and air conditioning by contractors.

The affected surge protectors are identified as Type 2 surge protectors and are labeled Supco Model SCM150, and Sycom Model SYC‑120/240-T2. Both are manufactured by Sycom Surge, Inc.
