Knowing Fire Code is Essential to the Proper Installation and Maintenance of Fire Extinguishers

ESC of Greater Ohio works hard to get and keep your business. One of our big sellers is fire extinguishers and it’s certainly one area that you need to know about. If you have fire extinguishers in your business, you must follow fire code or risk the wrath of a local city or county fire inspector or State Fire Marshal.
From a service and maintenance standpoint, here’s the meat:

  • NFPA 10, Section 4-3.1, requires that fire extinguishers be inspected when initially installed and thereafter at approximately 30-day intervals.
  • Section 4-4.1 on maintenance says that fire extinguishers should be maintained at intervals of not more than 1 year, at the time of hydrostatic test, or when specifically indicated by an inspection. 
  • In addition, Section 4-4.3 requires that stored-pressure fire extinguishers that require a 12-year hydrostatic test shall be emptied and subjected to the applicable maintenance procedures every six years.
  • This is only part of the story you need to know about. Just as important is the type of fire extinguishers you buy and where you install them throughout your facility. Here’s a short list of all the major types of portable fire extinguishers and what they are designed to do, meaning the types of fires they are engineered to fight:
  • Class A: Fires that involve wood, cloth, rubber, paper, and some types of plastics.
  • Class B: Fires that involve gasoline, oil, paint, natural and propane gases, and flammable liquids, gases, and greases.
  • Class C: Fires that involve all the materials found in Class A and B fires, but with the introduction of an electrical appliances, wiring, or other electrically energized objects in the vicinity of the fire.
  • Class D: Fires that involve combustible metals, such as sodium, magnesium, and potassium.
  • For additional information on fire extinguishers and the fire code that regulates their installation and on-going service, go to: http://bit.ly/1QBV0y4, or call 614-754-1393, or send an email to electronicsystemsconsultants@gmail.com. We’re ESC, we have your back!

    Larkin spent fourteen weeks on the campus of Tri-C studying a business and management curriculum designed by Babson College, a top-ranked school for entrepreneurial education.

    “This was a great opportunity and experience for me as a small business owner looking to expand and grow my company,” says Larkin. “The course is designed to take you away during normal business hours to work on your company and not in your company. It helped me focus on a short and long-term business plan that will be implemented immediately.”
