Fire Extinguisher Inspections & Recharging Winnipeg

No Matter what kind of business you have, the first line of defense against fire is a properly maintained and inspected fire extinguisher. When your fire extinguisher fails, a small fire can quickly escalate into a devastating tragedy. Having regular fire extinguisher inspection and maintenance is essential to being prepared for any fire emergency – large or small.

We Keep Your Equipment Inspected & Serviced

NFPA 10, Winnipeg bylaws and M.B. Fire Code Section 2.1.3.7 require your fire extinguishers to:

  • Abide to the applicable CAN/ULC standards for installation
  • Be inspected monthly
  • Be inspected and tested annually by an authorized fire protection professional
  • undergo scheduled maintenance at 3, 6 and 12 years

Annual Fire Extinguisher Inspection Requirements

NFPA 10 requires a thorough annual examination of your portable fire extinguishers’ mechanical parts, extinguishing agent and expelling means by an approved fire protection service.

These annual maintenance and functional tests for portable fire extinguishers include:

  • All monthly inspection requirements
  • Conductivity test of all carbon dioxide and hose assemblies
  • Ensure extinguishers are in proper operating condition
  • Check safety seals, tags, pressure gauge reading, HMIS table
  • Empty and recharge all stored pressure-loaded stream fire extinguishers
  • Determine six-year maintenance or hydrostatic test
  • Inspect shell and nameplate
  • Check hanger/seismic bracing

After any maintenance, we install new tamper seals. And we fully document all test results as required by NFPA 10.

Portable Fire Extinguisher Recharge and Refill Service

In order to ensure your extinguisher will fire in emergency situations, you will need to schedule fire extinguisher recharging after each use. It doesn’t matter if you used the whole can or just a tiny bit – even a few lost milliseconds of pressure or extinguishant could mean the difference between a fire put down or a fire that gets out of hand.
