Frequently Asked Questions about Fire Extinguisher Inspections
Why Is Conducting Regular Inspections on Fire Extinguishers Important?
Fire extinguisher inspections are essential to ensure the condition of the extinguisher is useable in an emergency.
How Often Do Fire Extinguishers Need to Be Inspected?
Fire extinguishers need to be checked for maintenance risks annually
Fire extinguishers need to be emptied and maintained every 6-years (for refillable dry chemical extinguishers that require a 12-year hydrostatic test)
Fire extinguishers need to be hydrostatically tested (every 5-12 years depending on type)
NFPA 10 also requires that fire extinguishers be inspected when initially placed into service.
What Should be Checked During a Monthly Fire Extinguisher Inspection?
It is recommended that monthly fire extinguisher inspections check that they are:
Located in a designated place
Readily accessible (e.g. not obstructed)
Mounted off the ground
Full either by verifying that the pressure gauge reading or indicator on the fire extinguisher is in the operable range or by "hefting" the extinguisher to determine its weight
Free of obvious physical damage, corrosion, leakage, or clogged nozzle
Legibly labeled with outward facing operating instructions for the extinguisher
Equipped with an unbroken safety seal and tamper indicators
Equipped with (as applicable) tires, wheels, carriage, hose, and nozzle that are in good condition
Do I Have to Record Monthly Inspections On a Tag Attached to Each Fire Extinguisher?
No. NFPA 10 states, that inspection records may "be kept on a tag or label attached to the fire extinguisher, on an inspection checklist maintained on file, or by an electronic method." It goes on to say that fire extinguisher inspection records must include the month and year the inspection was performed and the initials of the person performing the inspection and that those records must be maintained for at least 12 months.
Please note that annual maintenance must be documented on a tag or label that is securely attached to the fire extinguisher. This tag must document the month and year the maintenance was performed on the fire extinguisher, the person performing the work, and the name of the agency performing the work.
Can Fire Extinguishers be Stored on the Ground?
No. In accordance with NFPA 10, hand operated fire extinguishers must be mounted such that their:
Bottom is at least 4 inches above the floor
Top is not more than 5 feet above the floor (for extinguishers weighing 40-pounds or less)
Top is not more than 3.5 feet above the floor (for extinguishers weighing more than 40-pounds)
Can Your Fire Inspection Inspection Software Be Used to Meet Joint Commission - Environment of Care Requirements?
Yes, our software and tracking app meet or exceed the Joint Commission's fire extinguisher inspection requirements.
What Regulations and Standards Require Fire Extinguishers Inspections?
Below are a few examples of regulations and standards that require fire extinguisher inspections:
National Fire Protection Association - NFPA 10: Standard for Portable Fire Extinguishers
Can Fire Extinguisher Inspection Software Track Maintenance Activities?
