Fire protection is vital – in your business, your home, and your investment properties. The best way to protect your real estate from fire is to have a professional fire protection company ensure that all the right elements are in place.
The law in Florida, and most of the nation requires that fire extinguishers be inspected every year. This is important to ensure that the most fundamental fire suppression device – a fire extinguisher – is where it belongs and is fully functional when someone needs it.
Fire Extinguisher and the Law
The law states that there needs to be a fire extinguisher within 75 feet of every point in a commercial building and 30 feet in areas where food is being prepared. These will typically be installed at construction unless a building is being retrofitted.
The team at All Florida Fire Equipment can advise on new construction or renovation as to where to place the extinguishers to meet legal requirements. We can also work with your general contractor to complete the installation.
What happens during a fire extinguisher inspection?
Most of the time, it’s not necessary for anyone to walk with the inspector. They can simply get into the building and handle everything for you.
There are a number of things that are looked at during fire extinguisher inspection and maintenance:
- Ensure that the path to the extinguisher isn’t blocked and that it’s clearly marked.
- Look for damage or cracks in the hose.
- Make sure the pin isn’t pulled or that the handle has been damaged.
- Look for vandalism and tampering.
- Make sure that the extinguisher is still fully charged.
- If it needs to be recharged, it can be done right on-site.
- We can also deliver new fire extinguishers for devices that are non-functional.
Most fire extinguishers require very little maintenance, but stored pressure devices need to be maintained every six years. The internal parts need to be replaced to guarantee that they will work when needed.
In the Port Richey area, as well as the rest of the state, kitchen fire systems must be inspected annually as well. Without a good kitchen fire system you can lose your entire business in a matter of minutes, not to mention the potential loss of life.
