Why are Fire Extinguisher Inspection Tags Important?
Extinguisher tags are an important part of keeping compliant with fire safety codes, aiding in ensuring each extinguisher has been inspected, tested, and maintained appropriately. These tags provide information regarding the date of the most recent inspection, or even a full inspection history, in addition to any notes about particulars of the tagged extinguisher (such as its age, frequency of use, whether or not a recharge is necessary).
Properly tagged fire extinguishers hold a large amount of important information, including:
- The date of the extinguisher’s most recent inspection.
- The fire extinguisher’s model and serial number.
- The tech that inspected the extinguisher, which may be important for any questions or troubleshooting.
- The expiration date of the extinguisher, helping you to know when fire extinguisher replacement becomes necessary.
- Additional notes regarding the state of the extinguisher or any important details for the next inspector.
Do All Fire Extinguishers Need to be Tagged?
Yes. In order to remain compliant with both OSHA codes and NFPA fire safety codes, all extinguishers should be tagged as a part of their certification. Complete fire extinguisher certification in Orlando or Tampa mandates that an annual inspection provided by a Florida state licensed technician must be kept up with, and after each inspection the extinguisher needs to be tagged. It’s also wise to keep a separate maintenance log for each extinguisher, which most trustworthy fire protection companies such as United Fire Protection will do.
