Fire Extinguishers are often the first line of defense in many fire emergencies. Fully understanding a portable fire extinguisher’s capabilities and limitations are often overlooked.


As per NFPA 10;

  • Fire Extinguishers shall be inspected at intervals not greater than 30 days as outlined within NFPA 10. This includes confirming location, operating nameplates are intact, safety seals are in place, and examination for obvious physical damage, corrosion, leakage and clogged nozzles.
  • Internal Examinations of portable fire extinguishers vary from 1-6 years depending on extinguisher type.
  • Hydrostatic Testing of fire extinguisher cylinders varies from 5 to 12 years dependent upon extinguisher type .


  • Stay compliant. As outlined in Section 6.2 of the BC Fire Code, portable and wheeled fire extinguishers are required to be maintained in accordance with NFPA 10. This standard calls for the inspection of portable fire extinguishers at a minimum of 30 days and a maintenance interval of not more than 1 year. Let the trained and knowledgeable Community Fire Prevention staff help you meet all requirements of both your local Authority Having Jurisdiction (AHJ) as well as outside insurance agencies.
  • Know the Code. Community Fire Technicians are trained and certified by ASTTBC and stay up to date with ongoing in-house training of codes, standards and manufacturers requirements. Fire Extinguishers also require on-going multiyear inspections where the cylinders are hydrostatically tested to ensure safety.
  • Keep your fire extinguishers in peak operation. By completing monthly inspections of site fire extinguishers you are increasing the assurance that the fire extinguisher remains fully functional over the course of a year.
  • Reduce the worry of insurance coverage eligibility. Community Fire electronically documents all services performed at every site including routine maintenance, annual fire inspections and on-going service calls to test and inspect fire equipment.
  • Promote Safety. We demonstrate commitment to a higher standard of protection for your employees or residents by maintaining all your fire and life safety equipment professionally and on-time.
