Annual Inspection

Portable fire extinguishers must be inspected and tagged on an annual basis.

Dry chemical fire extinguishers require a full internal inspection of the unit every 6 years. This procedure includes removing and replacing the fire extinguishing agent. These units must be hydrotested every 12 years.

Carbon Dioxide (CO2) fire extinguishers do not require 6 year maintenance but must be hydrotested every 5 years.
