Extinguishers, fire hoses and other fire safety equipment (alarms, exit signs, emergency lights) need to be checked on a regular basis to ensure they are in working condition. Typically a quick visual check is to be done at least monthly by an employee or the monitor in the area. Under law extinguishers and hoses must be checked and documented at least once a year by a qualified inspector. They also must have a sign-off tag (or other documentation) to verify that they have been inspected.
Extinguishers must be recharged anytime that they have been used, if the pin has been pulled , or the gauge is not in the green. Even if an extinguisher was only used a small amount it must be serviced as the used powder clogs the valve and prevents reuse.
There are five different classifications of fire extinguishers. You must properly match the class of extinguisher with the potential hazard:
These fires are considered ordinary or common combustibles including wood, paper, cloth, rubber, household rubbish, and some plastics. (Label is normally Green in color)
These fires involve flammable liquids including oils, grease, tar, lacquers, flammable gases, oil-based paints, and some plastics. (Label is normally Red in color)
These fires involve energized electrical equipment including computers, building wiring, circuit breakers, light fixtures, and appliances. (Label is normally Blue in color)
These fires involve combustible metals including magnesium, titanium, zirconium, sodium, lithium, and potassium. (Label is normally Yellow in color)
In short, yes. Fire sprinkler systems are great for putting out fires after they start, but they only come on once the fire has reached a certain temperature, at which point it will have already done damage. Fire alarm systems, particularly smoke detectors, round out your fire protection because they detect smoke and other gases before the flames start, giving you extra time to escape the building. They can also automatically alert the fire department.
Yes, all fire extinguishers provided by Bulwark Solutions can be easily re-filled. Although when considering the cost of labor and travel included in this process, sometimes its more cost effective to simply ‘Swap out’ the unit for a new unit – we dispose of all units with environment in mind and can provide a certificate of correct disposal if required
Fire alarm monitoring is basically a guarantee your building has eyes on it 24/7, keeping it protected from fires at all times. If the fire alarms go off in your building, the fire alarm monitoring company will notify the fire department within seconds – even if you’re not there, or if you’re in the process of safely evacuating. Everyone has heard horror stories of people showing up to work and seeing the charred wreckage of what was once their office (and all their equipment, data, etc.) – don’t let this happen to you!
