Frequently Asked Questions:
1. How to check when Fire Extinguishers are due for service?
This is a common question, as we often forget when our fire protection services come up due each year !! By looking at the Certification Tag hanging from the certified Fire Extinguisher, you will see a variety of information including the day, month, and year it was last serviced. The company's who serviced the Fire Extinguisher information, their contacts, along with licensing numbers, etc! Have any more questions? Give us a Call at; (209)982.9466
2. When should a Hood Suppression System be serviced? & Why?
A Fire Suppression System should be serviced every SIX months! This may seem a little redundant & costly for a business owner, although it could save everything in that building including people. inventory, etc. from a terrible fire. Servicing the equipment every six months, helps to ensure that the system is fully functional & operational for use.
3. when should an automatic Sprinkler System be serviced? & why?
Automatic Sprinklers are a little bit different from other Fire Protection Equipment, meaning it should be serviced quarterly, annually, AND every 5 years, as well. These services make sure that all components are clear and good for use in case of an emergency. Without servicing/inspecting a twenty-year old building, how would you know if it actually works?
4. Why are Fire Extinguishers so important?
Portable Fire Extinguishers are vital to a company and/or business, for many of reasons! They are probably the quickest and easiest way to put a small fire out without causing more damage and/or costs! For example, a fire in the trash can would be the time to use a Fire Extinguisher, before it spreads too much!
