Fire Extinguishers

"Safety First, is Safety Always." - Charles M. Hayes

Fire Extinguishers are intended to be used as a first line of defense when a fire occurs. They're needed even if the property is equipped with automatic sprinklers or other fixed fire protection equipment. Fire Extinguishers are very effective against small fires and can prevent property damage - but only if equipment is properly placed, efficiently maintained, and used by trained individuals.

Digital Fire offers both Monthly & Annual Inspections which is important and necessary to be in compliance with NFPA 10 codes. Digital Fire performs Fire Extinguisher Inspections to ensure no sign of tampering or damage has occured, that there are no obstructions placed in the hose or nozzle that will affect operation, new service tags are updated yearly and a detailed inspection report of the units to note any deficiencies found.

 

There are five types of fire extinguishers available:

Class A – Fires Caused by Ordinary Materials, Such as Wood, Paper & Most Plastics
Class B – Fires Caused by Grease, Oil, Gasoline, & Kerosene
Class C – Fires Involving Electrical Equipment, Such as Wiring & Appliances
Class D – Fires Involving Hot Burning Metals
Class K – Fires Involving Cooking Oils, Typically in Kitchens & Restaurants
