Fire Extinguisher Safety in Folsom
Fire extinguishers are your first line of defense when a fire forms inside your commercial kitchen. If your staff knows where to find a fire extinguisher and how to use it, you can reduce property damage and serious injury.
Fire extinguishers can only help in an emergency if they work properly. That’s why Fire and Safety Commodities offers fire extinguisher maintenance as part of our fire prevention services.
Fire Prevention Through Fire Extinguisher Maintenance
Fire prevention starts with you. Inspect your fire extinguishers on a monthly basis. If you notice damage or if you have to use a fire extinguisher, call our team for service. Some fire extinguishers will not work after partial use, so don’t rely on a used fire extinguisher without scheduling maintenance.
Our Fire Extinguisher Inspection
Folsom, LA, fire safety laws require you to get an annual fire extinguisher inspection from a licensed professional. When you call us for service, we examine the outside of each fire extinguisher for leaks, corrosion, or other damage. Sometimes, vandals damage fire extinguishers, rendering them useless if a fire breaks out. We will repair all types of damage to make sure each fire extinguisher works during an emergency.
Fire extinguishers can last many years, but they will eventually reach the end of their lifespan. If you have had the same fire extinguishers in your building for over a decade, the safest thing to do is to call Fire & Safety Commodities for a professional inspection.
Recharging Fire Extinguishers
Always schedule maintenance after you use a fire extinguisher. Even using it for a few seconds can change the internal pressure, making it less effective when the next fire breaks out. We can check the pressure level and recharge a fire extinguisher to prevent serious damage in the future.
Types of Fire Extinguishers
Different types of fires require different types of fire extinguishers. During our complimentary walkthrough, we will identify different types of fires that may occur. Fires on electrical equipment require a different type of extinguisher than fires that start on a kitchen stove or in a pile of wood.
Ensuring you have the correct type of fire extinguisher in each area will help maximize safety during a fire. We’ve covered some types below:
- Extinguishers marked “ABC” are versatile enough to put out different types of fires, including on electrical equipment.
- Class D extinguishers can effectively extinguish fires on metal surfaces.
- Class A and B extinguishers can put out larger fires and include a rating that states what size of fire each extinguisher can handle.
During our service call, our team will ensure each area of your building has the correct type of extinguisher nearby.
