Annual Inspection of Fire Extinguisher

Fire is perhaps the most damaging danger to homes. It destroys everything in its path and it spreads rapidly. If a fire isn’t caught as soon as possible, it could quickly turn into an inferno. That’s why it’s so important to have fire suppression systems in place. Fire alarms, smoke detectors, and fire extinguishers are all essential.

But what’s just as important is conducting regular inspections on them. If these devices fail when they’re needed, then having them at all is pointless. In this video, you will learn about fire suppression inspections.

The video will walk you through an annual inspection of a typical hand-held fire extinguisher. It will explain what to look at and what you should be checking for, making note of anything in particular that might be more important. On the outside, make sure that all labels and instructions are visible. Also, check for corrosion or any signs of wear. The hose, the pressure gauge, and the contents should also be checked, and the video will show you how.
