Fire Extinguisher

Ensuring buildings are equipped with working fire extinguishers is just one part of a robust fire-prevention plan. It’s not good enough to just have extinguishers available, they have to be ready to be used at any given moment. That is why it is important to have your fire extinguishers regularly inspected. Jump to Fire Extinguisher’s sections:
A non-inspected or non-tested fire extinguisher may not function when needed in a true fire emergency. Being able to quickly extinguish a small fire can make all the difference between saving lives and preventing extensive damage.
What To Expect With a Fire Extinguisher Inspection
All businesses in NYC have the legal responsibility to ensure that fire extinguisher inspections are being performed timely and recorded accurately. FDNY regulations cover more than just ensuring extinguishers are available and properly inspected.

The FDNY also regulates:
  • The number of extinguishers needed in a building
  • The type of extinguisher required
  • The proper placement and distance between each
Upon completion, inspections must be noted on each fire extinguisher’s tag. The FDNY can request records or proof of inspection at any given time. If they ask for the history inspections and maintenance records, and if they find any discrepancies in paperwork, fines could be imposed in the range from $600 to $1,000!
What to Expect With Fire Extinguisher Inspections
Portable fire extinguishers need regular inspections, testing and maintenance to ensure that they’re ready to operate. When experienced inspectors from Allstate Sprinkler visit your building, we visually inspect each unit for noticeable issues.

We ensure correct placement of extinguishers around your building. We check the pressure on each fire extinguisher and recharge units as needed. We notate that inspections have been properly completed so your records are up to date in the event of a review by the FDNY.

We can also offer advice and answer any questions you have regarding fire safety and prevention equipment, provide recommendations for new models and service existing extinguishers as needed.

Fire Extinguisher Inspection Questions

It is required by the Rules of The City of New York, section 3RCNY §15-02, as well as NFPA 10 that all inspections, maintenance, recharging, and/or testing is required once a year. If your last inspection isn’t properly noted on each extinguisher tag or you’re uncertain of the last time your building’s extinguishers have been checked for functionality, reach out to Allstate Sprinkler. We will provide you immediate service and provide you with this important and required service.
