Maintenance of fire extinguishers is essential and is documented in BS 5306. It is vital that they work when they are needed. The British Standards – which provide guidelines for fire safety – state that annual maintenance of fire protection equipment, including fire extinguishers must be carried out by a competent person.
Fire extinguishers require an annual inspection from a competent person to British Standard 5306 Part 3.
Once the technician has completed the service they will discuss any further work required with you on the day.
