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 a State of Ohio 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.

ESC Gives Back by Assisting Lutheran Social Services' Food Pantry in Columbus

Team ESC (Electronic Systems Consultants LLC) of Greater Ohio took time out of a busy schedule to assist the Lutheran Social Services food pantry.

"I believe in paying forward our appreciation to the greater Columbus community for being so good to us as a OMBE firm," says John Larkin, ESC Senior Partner. Our employees assisted the pantry in handing out food to those of the community who are presently less fortunate than we are."

The Lutheran Social Services provides food at the Champion Avenue Food Pantry for people in need. Groups from Gethsemane stock shelves and assist the families in selecting food for balanced meals. We also regularly collect food and funds for the Food Pantry.

Team ESC (above) shown after assisting at Lutheran Social Services' community give back day at 1460 s. Champion Ave, Columbus.

"It was a great opportunity to work with an organization within our work community to help give back and support people in need," says Larkin. "After it was over, I treated 'Team ESC' to dinner at the Eagle on North High in Columbus."

The pantry also collects non-perishable food year round for the pantry. Volunteers like ESC are occasionally needed to deliver donated goods to the Champion Avenue site. If you would like more information about volunteering at the food pantry, contact the Mission and Ministry Committee, or if you're someone in need of food, you can contact the LSS Food Pantry by calling 614-443-5130 or by visiting them at 1460 S. Champion Avenue, in Columbus, OH. You also can find additional information on the pantry at http://www.lssco.org.
