Fire Extinguisher Installation
Fire extinguishers play a pivotal and essential role in safeguarding your commercial building and people in the event of a fire breaking out. A typical fire protection plan, in-line with a Fire Risk Assessment, would ensure fire extinguishers (lifesaving critical fire safety equipment) are in place, under the duties and responsibilities of a Responsible Person, along with helping to give peace of mind for all involved, as well helping to prevent catastrophic damage to property and even loss of life. Fire extinguishers are first aid firefighting pieces of equipment, essential for putting out small and undeveloped fires.
Fire extinguisher commissioning consists of the initial service of checking and labelling your fire extinguishers. The commissioning of fire extinguishers is fundamentally going through the setup process to ensure that each and every extinguisher that is installed is indeed fit for purpose in the event of a fire. Even after commissioning, fire extinguisher servicing will be required at a minimum of once every 12 months.
