    Fire extinguishers play a vital role in firefighting in the event of a fire incident, so it is necessary to make sure that fire extinguishers operate correctly.

    All fire extinguishers should be properly inspected, tested, and maintained regularly. It is recommended to conduct a monthly safety inspection for all fire extinguishers.

    How to conduct fire extinguisher inspection

    • Fire Extinguisher is placed at a specified location and is visible and unobstructed.

    • There is not any physical damage to the extinguisher.
    • The pressure gauge is on green color or operable range.
    • The extinguisher is not empty by lifting it.
