 What Do We Do?

At Nassau-Suffolk Fire Extinguisher Service & Inspection we make sure your business is compliant with all local and state regulations regarding portable fire extinguishers.  During a routine inspection fire extinguishers must be visible and free from obstruction. We also ensure the locking pin is secure and the tamper seal is intact. Moreover, look for evident physical damage, corrosion, leaks, or a blocked nozzle on the extinguisher. It is our responsibility to check that the pressure gauge or indication is set to the correct range or position and that the extinguisher is still full. We ensure the nameplate’s operating instructions are legible and look outward.

 

Know A Bit About Fires

To be able to prevent any fire mishap, it is necessary that you know a bit about fires. This will help to choose what type of extinguisher to choose to put it out in case of any fire accident. Fires are classified into 6 classes. Class A, B, C, D, E, and F.

Class A: The root cause of this class of fires is a solid combustible. These are safe to put out using water-based extinguishers.

Class B: Its root cause lies inflammable liquids. You can’t put them out using water, since water is heavier so, the combustion of liquid will continue taking place on top of the water. Hence, foam-type extinguishers are better.

Class C: They stem from flammable gases. The best way to stop them is to use another gas as the counter. Carbon dioxide extinguishers are mostly employed.

Class D: Believe it or not, some fires are also a result of metals. Most common are the fires coming from lithium-ion batteries. As unique as the source of fire, equally unique preventive measures are needed. L2 and M28 powder is the most effective use to cool down such fires.

Class E: Electrical appliances, though safe, are prone to fire mishaps. This class contains those fires. The best way to put them out is using dry extinguishers, like CO2 and dry powder.

Class F: The kitchen is one place where fire mishaps are most likely to happen. Such places have a number of combustibles, cooking oil being one of them. Class F refers to them.

Services we Provide

There’s a myriad of services we offer to our clients in the following fields:

Our professionals check the tag for the most recent professional service date. We’ll check to see whether the fire extinguisher is “in the green,” meaning it’s fully charged and ready to use. There are a few extinguishers that demand a little more attention than others.

The cartridge-operated extinguisher is one of them. There is no pressure gauge on this sort of extinguisher; instead, it features an indication. We want to make sure the indication isn’t up and running; instead, we want to make sure it’s down and running.

A CO2 (carbon dioxide) extinguisher is the other type of extinguisher. It doesn’t have a gauge since this extinguisher is self-expelling and will pressurise itself. All we want to do is double-check that the fire extinguisher is fully charged.

What Are The Important Things That Are Needed To Be Taken Care Of To Combat Fire Emergency?

Keeping in mind these things will immensely help you in case of a fire emergency:
The emergency exits should be well marked, the halls should be backlit when the lights are turned out, the exit signs should be expanding, and the emergency door should be quickly identified and opened in the event of an emergency.
Each story of the building should have fire extinguishers, and all structures should have fire extinguishers within 75 feet of each other.
