WHY INSPECT YOUR FIRE EXTINGUISHERS?
It’s easy to think that once you have purchased and installed the correct fire extinguishers, you never have to think about those shiny red canisters ever again. However, it’s necessary to have your extinguishers professionally inspected and maintained annually by a licensed fire inspection company, in addition to performing monthly inspections yourself.
Fire extinguisher inspections ensure that all canisters meet the following requirements:
- Full pressure: A canister that has been depressurized even slightly may no longer have the capacity to fight a fire effectively. This puts your business at undue risk if a fire breaks out in your building.
- Proper labeling: An illegible or missing label could cause someone to misuse an extinguisher, potentially endangering him or herself and reducing effectiveness when fighting a fire.
- No signs of damage or tampering: A leaky or damaged fire extinguisher may not work properly. Plus, a missing lock pin or broken anti-tamper seal could indicate tampering, meaning the extinguisher shouldn’t be used.
- Code compliant: National fire codes require annual extinguisher inspections from a qualified fire protection company. Skipping this maintenance could put you at risk of code violations and costly fines.
