When it comes to fire extinguisher service, inspection, maintenance, recharging, and testing, there is quite a lot of data to keep track of! When do you get your extinguisher inspected? How do you know when it’s time for maintenance? What is the time period for a recharge? And how often should a fire extinguisher be tested? Let’s review the Fire and Life-Safety Group’s guidelines based on standards set by the NFPA.
Please note that the time periods indicated on this page are the maximum duration between servicing and that servicing can and should occur as often as is necessary. Contact your local fire department for more information about proper fire extinguisher inspection, maintenance, recharging, and hydrostatic testing.
