Inspection

An inspection is a quick check to give reasonable assurance that a fire extinguisher is available, fully charged and operable. Based on individual needs, inspections should be conducted when extinguishers are initially placed in service and once a year thereafter, to make sure the pressure gas is in the “green zone.” If not, your extinguisher needs to be serviced.

Maintenance

Fire extinguishers should be maintained when indicated by an inspection. Maintenance is a thorough check of the extinguisher, to give maximum assurance that an extinguisher will operate effectively and safely. It includes a thorough examination and any necessary repair, recharging or replacement. It will also determine if there is a need for hydrostatic testing of an extinguisher.
