Fire Alarm Washington


Fire Extinguisher is an active fire protection device used to extinguish or control small fires, often in emergency situations. It is not intended for use on an out-of-control fire, such as one which has reached the ceiling, endangers the user (i.e. no escape route, smoke, explosion hazard, etc.), or otherwise requires the expertise of a fire department. Typically, a fire extinguisher consists of a hand-held cylincer containing an agent which can be discharged to extinguish a fire. In the United States, fire extinguishers, in all buildings other than houses, are generally required to be serviced and inspected by a Fire Protection service company at least annually. Some jurisdictions require more frequent service for fire extinguishers. At the time of service, a fire extinguisher tag is placed on the extinguisher to indicate the type of service perform (annual inspection, recharge, new fire extinguisher) and date of service. Fire extinguishers utilize compressed carbon dioxide instead of nitrogen, although nitrogen cartridges are used on low temperature models.
