Fire extinguishers are life-saving equipment and should be inspected and serviced frequently, not only by the professionals, but also by business owners. According to Paul Mayfair - manager of SK Fire Protection in the UK, there seems to be a general misconception that brand new fire extinguishers can be installed at business premises without being commissioned as ‘serviced’ in accordance with the prescribed British Standards.
“The servicing of fire extinguishers is critical and usually involves an annual inspection of the fire extinguisher on-site, which is referred to as Basic Fire Extinguisher Service. Depending on the type of fire extinguisher, some may also require Extended Servicing which is carried every five to 10 years,” Mayfair explained.

The servicing of fire extinguishers is equally important to SK Fire Protection, as the equipment itself as it can mean the difference between life and death in critically dangerous situations.
