To ensure your fire alarm system remains in peak operating condition and complies with NFPA standards, it’s recommended to have it inspected and maintained at least annually. However, the specific frequency can vary based on the system type, the environment in which it’s installed, and local regulations. Island Fire & Defense Systems offers customized maintenance plans to meet these needs, ensuring your system is always ready to protect your property and occupants.

Fire Extinguisher Questions

Island Fire & Defense Systems provides a comprehensive range of fire extinguishers to suit various needs, including ABC, BC, K Class, and CO2 extinguishers. Each type is designed to tackle specific classes of fires, ensuring that your premises are equipped with the right protection against different fire hazards. Our expert team can advise on the best options based on your unique requirements and the specific risks associated with your environment.

Fire extinguishers require regular inspections and maintenance to ensure they are ready to use in an emergency. Monthly visual inspections by the owner and annual maintenance checks by a certified technician are recommended to ensure compliance with NFPA standards. Additionally, more extensive inspections such as internal maintenance and hydrostatic testing are required at specific intervals, typically every 6 years and 12 years, respectively, depending on the type of extinguisher.

Our thorough inspection process involves several key steps to ensure your fire extinguishers are in optimal condition and compliant with regulations. Technicians will check the extinguisher’s pressure, inspect for damage or corrosion, verify manufacture and maintenance dates, and ensure the hose, nozzle, and seals are intact. They will also conduct a detailed examination of the valve, powder, and overall functionality, reseal the extinguisher, and update maintenance tags. This comprehensive approach guarantees that your fire extinguishers are ready for immediate use when needed.
