Frequently Asked Questions:
Does a fire extinguisher need to be certified?
In short, yes. When your fire extinguisher is certified, it means that it is in compliance with city, county, and state fire code. Certification also ensures that particular piece of equipment meets OSHA and NFPA fire safety standards. Only a certified and licensed technician is permitted to properly install, certify, inspect, or service fire extinguishers.
What do the A B C class ratings mean on fire extinguishers?
The A, B, C, D, and K ratings classify the types of fires each fire extinguisher is designed to fight, and therefore what type of fire extinguisher you need at your location. Typically, portable fire extinguishers put out ABC class types of fires. A = common combustibles, B = flammable liquids and gases, and C = live electrical equipment.
Why not buy a fire extinguisher from a home improvement store?
When you purchase your fire extinguishers from The Firehouse Co., you can rest assured that each unit is reliable, effective for your potential fire needs, and/or compliant with city, county, or state standards and fire code. Fire extinguishers for businesses also require a proper inspection or certification from a professional.
