IMPORTANT: Recharge all extinguishers immediately after use regardless of how much they were used.
What is the difference between a fire extinguisher inspection and fire extinguisher maintenance?
An inspection is a “quick check” to give reasonable assurance that a
fire extinguisher is available, fully charged and operable. The value of
an inspection lies in the frequency, regularity, and
thoroughness with which it is conducted. The frequency will vary from
hourly to monthly, based on the needs of the situation. Inspections
should always be conducted when extinguishers are initially placed in
service and thereafter at approximately 30-day intervals.
Fire extinguishers should be maintained at regular intervals (at least
once a year), or when specifically indicated by an inspection.
Maintenance is a “thorough check” of the extinguisher. It is intended to
give maximum assurance that an extinguisher will operate effectively
and safely. It includes a thorough examination and any necessary repair,
recharging or replacement. It will normally reveal the need for
hydrostatic testing of an extinguisher
