80% of Fires are Put Out Without the Need to Call the Fire Department So We Make Sure to Keep Your Fire Extinguishers And Fire Suppressants In Working Order with Regular Fire Extinguisher Inspection and Onsite Maintenance

Sprinklers and automated suppression systems can save lives during a fire, but you never want to rely solely on machines – you want the power to manually suppress a fire during emergencies. Studies have shown that fire extinguishers are a very effective tool at extinguishing small fires without needing to call the fire department: approximately 80% of fire incidents where an extinguisher is present and in working condition end with the fire being put out, often without the involvement of the local fire department. By relying on us to keep your fire extinguishers well-maintained, you give yourself the chance to be among those 80% who had an extinguisher at the ready and avoided the worst-case scenario.

Our Licensed, Fully-Credentialed, Highly Trained, Hand-Selected and Franchised Owners Do It All, Including Internal Maintenance and Hydrostatic Testing

Many businesses will place one of their own employees in charge of monthly fire extinguisher inspections, which seems efficient when the extinguishers are working – but what happens when a problem is identified? You don’t want to be caught without a working extinguisher in a time of crisis – you want the issue handled immediately.

Fire extinguishers can be surprisingly complex to maintain. While basic monthly inspections can be done by anyone with the proper training, the common NFPA10 Standard requires detailed inspections and maintenance work that can only be done by certified professionals. This includes:

  • Full external inspections and maintenance work, performed yearly or whenever an issue is identified in monthly inspections
  • Full internal maintenance, performed once every 1-6 years depending on the extinguisher
  • Hydrostatic testing, performed once every 5-12 years depending on the extinguisher
  • Detailed recordkeeping for each procedure, including verification-of-service collars and/or tester ID no. stamps

These maintenance procedures can be complicated. Hydrostatic testing can be an especially dangerous procedure, as it involves stripping the extinguisher to its base components and filling it with pressurized water. You want a fire safety team you can trust to perform these procedures with care and expertise.

At Activate Fire Safety, we have the credentials to perform all these inspections and maintenance procedures. With a single team handling every step and collating your records in one place, we will save you time and money without compromising on your safety.
