Are you confused about how often you need to service and recharge your fire extinguisher? Properly maintaining your fire extinguisher is extremely important for the safety of your employees, but if you have multiple fire protection systems in your building, it can be difficult to remember when they all need to be serviced. Follow this guide to make sure your fire extinguishers are up to code at all times.

FIRE EXTINGUISHER CHECK-UP: EVERY MONTH

First of all, you should make an inventory of all of your fire extinguishers and where they are located throughout your facility. Then every month, walk around to all of the fire extinguishers in your building and check that the needle on the pressure gauge is in the green area.

This can be done on your own without the help of a fire protection services company. If you see a fire extinguisher with a low pressure gauge, make sure you call a fire protection services company right away to fix the problem and get your fire extinguisher back up to par.

FIRE EXTINGUISHER INSPECTION: ANNUALLY OR IMMEDIATELY AFTER USE

Fire extinguishers need professional inspection and general service at least once a year. In addition, if you notice that your fire extinguisher has lost pressure (if the needle on the pressure gauge is no longer in the green) or if you have used your fire extinguisher to put out a fire, schedule a fire extinguisher inspection as soon as possible.

During a fire extinguisher inspection, your fire extinguisher will be checked for damages and refilled (if necessary), so that your fire extinguisher will be ready to protect you the next time you need it.

 

FIRE EXTINGUISHER MAINTENANCE: EVERY SIX YEARS

Every six years you should have a fire protection services company take apart your fire extinguisher and carefully examine all of the components, then put your fire extinguisher back together and recharge it. This major fire extinguisher maintenance will help ensure that your fire extinguisher will keep you protected for years to come.

 

FIRE EXTINGUISHER HYDRO-TESTING: EVERY 12 YEARS

Have your fire extinguisher hydro-tested every 12 years to make sure that the extinguisher holds enough pressure and can still be used. If it does not, it may be time to buy a new fire extinguisher. At Inuksuk Safety, we can sell and install fire extinguishers of all types. No matter how big your facility is, you can sure it is up to code and that your employees or customers are protected.
