When you call and set up an on-site walk-through of your facility, a certified fire extinguisher service technician will ensure the following:
- Correct type of extinguisher is on premise specific to your business/operation.
- Extinguisher are charged and in working order and tagged
- Extinguishers are properly located throughout your establishment
Upon inspection, Professional Fire Service will examine your fire extinguishers to ensure they are in proper working order and will operate effectively and safely. If there is physical damage to an extinguisher PFS will be determined if repair or replacement is necessary. During an on-site inspection it will also be determined if an extinguisher must undergo further testing such as a Six-Year Maintenance or a Hydrostatic Test.
What is a Six-Year Maintenance? Every six-years, a stored pressured fire extinguisher, that requires a 12-year hydrostatic test, must be discharged and undergo an internal examination.
What is a Hydrostatic Test? Hydrostatic testing is pressure testing of a fire extinguisher to verify its strength against unwanted pressure.
It is the responsibility of the owner or the occupant of a property to ensure inspection, maintenance, and recharging of all fire extinguishers. If a fire extinguisher is temporarily removed due to maintenance or recharging a loaner extinguisher will be left on premise that has an equal or greater rating until the original extinguisher is returned.
Fire Extinguisher Inspections can mean the difference between a fire that is easily recovered from or a total loss.
Although the local fire departments of today have cut response times radically, a good in-date and charged fire extinguisher is always “first on-site” if a fire should happen. This is why Professional Fire Service performs on-site fire extinguisher inspections as well as other various fire extinguisher services.
There are many fire and safety codes in New York State, with many of these fire and safety codes varying at the local, state and federal level. It is important to select a fire extinguisher company that is certified and knowledgeable to ensure your establishment and fire extinguishers meet fire code criteria.
