Fire Extinguisher Inspections
Like any mechanical device, fire extinguishers must be maintained on a regular basis to insure their proper operation. You, the owner or occupant of the property where fire extinguishers are located, are responsible for ensuring your fire extinguishers' maintenance is complete and up to date.

What Happens During a Fire Extinguisher Inspection?
As a restaurant or business owner in the El Paso TX or Las Cruces NM areas, it’s important to follow fire extinguisher inspection guidelines. The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) has established these guidelines to help protect business owners, employees and customers from the deadly effects of fire.
First, the NFPA requires monthly fire extinguisher inspections. Fire extinguishers must be inspected or given a "quick check" every 30 days. For most extinguishers, this is a job that you can easily do by locating the extinguishers in your workplace. While these steps are important for ensuring your fire extinguishers remain at the ready in case of a fire, they are not a substitute for professional maintenance. After all, the NFPA also requires annual professional fire extinguisher inspections.
Contrary to common thought, an annual fire extinguisher inspection doesn’t involve testing the extinguisher. After all, this would needlessly waste its firefighting contents. The NFPA recommends testing only once every five to 12 years, depending on the type of fire extinguishers you have.
Fire Extinguisher Inspection Checklist
When you hire a professional to conduct a formal fire extinguisher inspection, the inspector will:
- Verify that a portable fire extinguisher is placed within 75 feet of travel on every floor of the building.
- Verify that a portable fire extinguisher is situated within 30 feet of cooking equipment in a commercial kitchen or restaurant.
- Ensure that each fire extinguisher is conspicuously located, not obstructed by objects and readily available for use in case of a fire.
- Make sure the label indicating the type of fire extinguisher is legible.
- Check the pressure dial for readability. Make sure the dial is pointing to the green to indicate a full charge.
- Make sure the fire extinguisher hose is intact.
- Make sure the pull pin is fastened securely within the handle and the tamper seal is unbroken.
- Check for dents, cracks or other signs on damage on the body of the extinguisher.
- Look for any modifications to the fire extinguisher that could possibly reduce its functionality.

Fire Extinguisher Recharge
If you have used your fire extinguisher, even if only for a short amount of time, you need to have your equipment recharged.

Fire Extinguishers Hydro-Testing
Unused and maintained fire extinguishers should last a very long time, but let’s face it, nothing’s perfect. If your fire extinguisher is more than 12 years old, the NFPA and local authorities require you to have it hydro-tested or replaced. A fire extinguisher hydro-test will make sure the shell of your fire extinguisher has no cracks or leaks that can cause it to malfunction when you need it most. If it turns out we need to replace your fire extinguishers, that’s no problem! We also provide fire extinguisher replacement in the El Paso TX and Las Cruces NM areas.
