Fire Extinguisher Service Overview
Portable fire extinguishers are the first line of defense against small fires in most buildings. In fact, while sprinklers, alarms, and other fire protection devices are only required in certain occupancies, portable fire extinguishers are required in every single business. Fire extinguishers should be readily accessible and fully functional for immediate use. Since all fire extinguishers are not created equal, it is vital to have the proper size and agent when needed to minimize damage. Properly maintained fire extinguishers operated by trained personnel save lives and prevent property damage.
The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) and state fire code, fire extinguishers shall be maintained annually and inspected monthly. Our licensed technicians will ensure that you have the right extinguisher for the hazard being protected, and that the quantity, and distance between them meet the code requirement.
All commercial businesses have fire extinguishers and Eagle Safety Management has a program designed to meet all requirements. Portable units require annual maintenance and monthly inspections. Many of our customers have us train their employees to perform the monthly quick check and we provide the annual maintenance, recharges, and testing, as necessary.
A significant advantage of our fire extinguisher service is that our fire extinguisher service equipment is mobile. With our mobile recharging van, we can complete all recharge maintenance on-site which eliminates the need to remove the fire extinguishers from the facility. This ensures complete fire protection during the maintenance in addition to not having to provide a portable fire extinguisher loaner or leave behind units. Our preventative maintenance (PM) program can ensure you are compliant and ready for any emergency.
